Did You Know?


When he is introduced as the regular entertainer at Sam Pomerantz' resort, Danny Brewster (played by Lennie Weinrib) briefly does an impression of then-President John F. Kennedy. This marks one of the rare times that someone does topical humor on the show. Normally, producer Carl Reiner tried to avoid any such references or the use of contemporary slang. See more »
