[In 1952] I'm not the comedian I once was. A comedian has to be slightly insulting, comedy has to be 70 per cent insults, and I'm always afraid today when I say something funny it may hurt someone. If another comic makes a crack about my mouth, I just can't insult him back.
In 1948, he won a special Tony Award for the touring production of "Harvey", cited for "spreading theater to the country while the original performs in New York".
