The post Bob Elliott, ‘Bob and Ray Show’ Star, Dies At 92 appeared first on uInterview.
Elliott and his comedy partner Ray Goulding performed unique skits, as they took turns playing the jokester or straight man, while most comedy duos had one permanent person for each role. Soft-spoken Elliot and rambunctious Ray hosted the TV sketch show “The Bob and Ray Show” from 1951-1953.
The duo recorded comedy albums and frequently appeared on “The Tonight Show” and “The Ed Sullivan Show,” and were seen in Norman Lear’s “Cold Turkey” and Arthur Hiller’s “Author! Author!” Staring in 1970, they starred in “Bob and Ray: The Two and Only” on Broadway.
“I like jokes, but Ray and I, we never did jokes,” Elliott said in a 2011 interview with the Archive of American Television. “We weren’t in that line of humor.
The partnership between Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding began in Boston in the late Forties, with the duo eventually headlining their own radio, TV and stage show. As part of the team's The Bob and Ray Show television program, Elliott popularized characters like reporter Wally Ballou,
Bob, who died at his home in Cundy's Harbor, Maine, started working with Ray Goulding on a local Boston radio station before transitioning to NBC radio, and, ultimately, to television from 1951-53.
The star often played straight man to Goulding's more boisterous characters, and the pair took the act everywhere from The Tonight Show to The Ed Sullivan Show and, eventually, Broadway. After Goulding's death in 1990, Bob continued on the airwaves,

Was it worth the wait? First and foremost, the show is much funnier than I remembered. As the audio commentary points out (and there’s one on every episode), the series premiere of “Get a Life” was a relatively straightforward comedy about a man-child. It wasn’t nearly as dark and twisted as it would later become. Quickly, “Get a Life” turned more into a show about a demented loner and
She will depart after four seasons on the show. While Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig were expected to exit the show, the news that Elliott may not come back was not widely reported.
Calls to NBC, which generally does not comment on "SNL" casting decisions until the start of the season, were not returned.
On the show, Elliott was known mostly for her impressions, which included Angelina Jolie, Khloe Kardashian, Rachel Maddow, Anna Faris and Rosie Pope.
Earlier this year, Elliott was cast in the Fox sitcom "Ned Fox Is My Manny" while concurrently on "SNL," which is rare. Some speculated that executive producer Lorne Michaels released Elliott from her "SNL" contractual requirements in order for her to appear on the sitcom. However, she exited "Ned Fox" after a table read, and
Gose, the Blue Jays’ second-highest rated player in their system – ranked below only catching phenom Travis d’Arnaud – started in centrefield for Team USA and had an amazing game before being substituted out prior the top of the fifth. The 21-year-old from Paramount, Calif. went 1-1 with a run and a walk as Team USA rallied from a 4-0 deficit through three-and-a-half innings to come back and crush the World team 17-5 at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.
Gose hit a ground ball single past the second baseman in the third inning, eventually scoring, and drew a four-pitch walk in the fourth.

From 1978 until last month, Andy Rooney, who has died aged 92, regularly occupied the last minutes of the CBS Sunday evening show 60 Minutes. Wry, often tart, sometimes combative and always beguiling, he presented a miniature essay on a topic of his choice. The programme's phenomenal audience figures in the Us and around the world made him one of the best known news commentators, even though his segment was only – to borrow its name – A Few Minutes With Andy Rooney.
Staring out from under a wiry thicket of eyebrows, he would rummage in his desk drawer and comment caustically on its contents, compare the shrinking quantities of coffee tins, ruminate on the existence of God – he was an agnostic – or mock the absurdities of the politically correct. His liberal tendencies brought enmity from the right, but his stalwart, old-fashioned values sometimes
