Personal Quote:

A friend once asked me what comedy was. That floored me. What is comedy? I don't know. Does anybody? Can you define it? All I know is that I learned how to get laughs, and that's all I know about it. You have to learn what people will laugh at, then proceed accordingly. See more »

Trivia:

Is portrayed by Matthew Cottle in Chaplin (1992). See more »

Gaze into the camera with arms up and palms out in a "What now?" gesture. See more »
