Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Joey Bishop] Most people think of [him] as just a replacement for Johnny Carson. That's NOT true. We in show business know better: we don't think of him at ALL. See more »


His friends often described him as easygoing and good natured, loving to laugh and make others laugh. They also said that he was sometimes quiet and liked to spend time alone, and that they seldom knew what he was thinking. See more »


Frequently worked with Jerry Lewis (until 1956) and members of the Rat Pack (Frank Sinatra, Joey Bishop, Peter Lawford and Sammy Davis Jr.) See more »
