Did You Know?
[on what makes a good comedian] There has to be more than just getting laughs. Laughs are not everything. People can scream at a comedian and yet not remember anything afterwards to talk about. To become real successful, they [the audience] must like you very much . . . they must have a feeling like, "Gee, I wish he was a friend of mine. I wish he was a relative".
1934: Star of NBC Radio's "The General Tire Show".
Often used the phrase, "Now cut that out!"
