Born: November 22, 1921 in Deer Park, Long Island, New York, USA
Died: October 5, 2004 (age 82) in Los Angeles, California, USA

Made 70 appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962).

[in a 1986 interview, explaining the origin of his “no respect” routine] I had this joke: “I played hide and seek; they wouldn’t even look for me”. To make it work better, you look for something to put in front of it: “I was so poor, I was so dumb”, so this, so that. I thought, “Now what fits that joke?” Well, “No one liked me” was all right. But then I thought, “A more profound thing would be, ‘I get no respect!’ “.
