Personal Quote:

On his nightclub years with Dan Rowan: "It had no real highs or lows, it was just straight-ahead work. I don't think we ever failed. We didn't zoom to stardom, but we always worked." See more »

Trivia:

When he was taping five game show episodes in one day (such as the later years of Match Game 73 (1973)), he often didn't bother with the facade of changing his clothes for each show - he wore the same clothes throughout the taping, making it appear he was wearing the same outfit each day he appeared on the show.
