Did You Know?
I think most of today's comedians are victims of laughter...they get nervous and resort to an insult or a four-letter word for a quick, cheap laugh. That goes on night after night until the whole act is cheapened. But that doesn't last. Usually, a couple of years later they are remembered only as the old what's-his-name who used all the dirty words.
Served in the United States Army during World War II (1944-1945).
Always ended his TV show and specials with, "Good night and may God bless."
