restaurant the flying public if you walked in my mother used to say he's wonderful . and i use the methods that i used to come on like a busboy insult people sitting there waiting to have breakfast you know we'll great time no money but great times so as i mentioned money to the list is fogged up and your brother and you walked away when you started. as comedically did you start insulting people you know i mean we use the word insult let's not insult to day it's exaggeration and an attitude somebody has kids come on today that they tried to do what you can't it's it's part of my personality and so i did i didn't plan on being me i went to the american academy of dramatic arts believe it or not i came out of the navy and i went this is the american academy and it's a great school and acting with my saying like that or going on with you know actor in the clothes there's been some great movies and you did say i was going to be shot saying i miss i don't know any book that rest a soldier's. best my closest thing to like broadway that we did in the round. up
the play the odd couple and the funny part is he played he played he played the heavy get i was the quiet guy you were feeling. and it were your feelings i heard you. to help us and. well your host of we're told one of you i know well i don't know. how much longer. you know that i know her and that's what i said i loved acting so when the big comedy thing happened when i found i could make money no not really a common thing i was always a kidding around and so i thought of the campus around on broadway and i was into i work in a place we were off the street when the wind came in it covered me with their truth and they were going to the joints all around the car just doing that somebody just started saying i'm going to have fun with people i'm going to work off i would really must to my work and it was in joints like in jersey you know had
a guy because to sit in the front row at a bathrobe and spit up was great for your father but the guy was still has. all kinds of joints at work that you don't like the internet you're on the internet now this is the new world on i got chills. chills like that. this is the no world on i don't care i'm eighty eight years old i don't know about the world thanks for the applause i'm eighty eight years old health is good and i'm doing this because i enjoy it and people show up to say me what the new world nation or what the whole secret is added to it was they way they were ethical those two hundred years if you like if you're going to hell and i always believe that the kids today don't want nothing if they do you know because it with all that stuff they find people laugh ok well i don't do that the truth is you're also one of the nicest people alive ever you are sweet person as anyone ever. but i mean no i'm ready to cry. did anyone ever take you serious did anyone ever get mad
well sure you know not not up to my face. when you it was bob hope russell when you're out there you know when you're out there selling yourself you can't please everybody career not everybody's going to walk out what he said i keep my friends do that voice i can come and see what you really have selling yourself and it's very difficult to have everybody love you and i'm certainly not all that but the whole world loves me you know and so when you started to get on celebrity all of who almost i was in a car going home a lot do you remember the first celeb you picked on not what i think they thought it really got me recognition was between johnny carson and frank sinatra. so we have biggest guys in the business that by the way we have found out what your illness is it is not critize ing fussy i guess you know but i must correct you one thing i don't have the disease and in other words the poison is the doctors that
u.c.l.a. that did that wonderful job and they were only up to my name eight and they got it all really you know laid up operation so it was really do you know what make good ties in firstly i diseases yeah it's a jewish fungus. but it tags only jewelry jewish women and this is revolutionary in attacks only june and rabbis die when i was nineteen or. when the first time you take done sinatra. did you have any trepidation because i know we had a great sense of humor but did you have some of the first time i met my mother went up to see dolly at the front it was starring at the fontainebleau this might not be the first time but it seems like. she said when she was there she called me to complete said dolly that was his mother please have frank frank he got frank about frank frank you go and see that me please you were in the lounge then yeah in the lounge at the play it wasn't allowed and it was a club called the marquis franklin's and luke twenty third street him and i went in there and all this and it was
a line around the block with what i do which was not telling jokes it was attitude making fun of people and not being hurtful in my opinion otherwise i wouldn't be on this that you know this was touch and go for a while. but i know you a long time and so it's like a marcy thinks of me and i. don't know so that's a lie or so what happened was. that he's thought of that stuff you know about making fun of people and she's not really into it and she said thank you go see done and he came in and i never met the man before in my life at that time and i said frank be yourself stand up and hit somebody. and all the guys with a moment is funny. i've traveled with scientists. floyd does what do you think the funny part you know and then i traveled with them for almost two years and work with them yeah and we have
a bit where they come out on this on the stage and i say frank you don't need that sort of thing that that's when you know when i do me because i don't want to do a stand up alone with him it wasn't for me so i would come up with the idea that interrupt all of their exact so after about three weeks i come up on stage i go frank pipes i'm a friend god. and he said isn't it funny listen but when talking about the phone i think it's a joke with them and you know commitment to take is funny. he said bet no i said. yeah he said and i said i think i'm going to win them. and. forget about it and then i get to talk to him but it was similar to ed sullivan was he fighting you know here he is a brilliant comedy mind and i walk out of state that i can't say i did why are you out here. while you had i'm supposed to come up and get off the stage and not let me come and see me later and somebody else and say we're back with us and. my
career is over my. daughter but they didn't mean any harm but frank was a was when we when he never was i had a relationship with him it was we went to dinner and i was eating he said you know i said i think i'm talking. and he would stop for a little so you can treat him anywhere you want anyway he was i'm always to my wife he was great with women too. well was it was it was that that it's not it wasn't really was he in danger is you know i once asked you did you ever not frank sinatra and us me if i had relatives he didn't jersey was he really tough guy freddy believed he was a tough guy but he was he was a boxer he was a kid but he always used to say when somebody bothered him with tony jail might be him one night we were in the men's room some guy was bottom francis and i would drop this guy right here i said tell me take care of it if. he had he like that sort of that was much oh yeah but he was he had i think
a wall they had to take his i know aside from on a regular basis so. when you walked into a room if you were along today when you walked into and i think you know that it stopped absolutely stunned people like them just like that i said it comes frankly since the dentist who stopped you know same thing with a certain. ronald reagan the same thing you know you killed him a lot oh yeah well i know when he was governor you know i said i've got a cousin that's going to chat tomorrow morning one phone call to let me write one phone call and he's doing good. and my cousin died. and this is a little we're going to know and you know what is my biggest treat life like laws because i was in hawaii for the cold and said you got to be in the office of the regular side and complain to the cabinet and i said oh well crazy but i had this guy get up there and buy him off so frank which i turned around and the inaugural
was really they said to my friend we're going to recalls he said let me put its weakness at rest itself he said if you don't have if you don't have wrinkles you're not going to have me i see exactly he said i couldn't think of nothing from my from that day on but we always did when we travel to europe together he was always he would a lot of food take done it's delicious and i would say that's great it's like he wanted to scrap you know he would do everything to get a rise and we were on our children of the past you know i was whole baritone you know those are those that will feed. on marriage and the financial world. is told let's start a city and family take no demand for credit you're not going to get any economic benefit in life there are. often.
