Who's Your Favorite Comedian?
Yea, a great style and demeanor. And one of those "older women" I admired, with a dash of lust :)
Gerard Hoffnung. Is there a recording out there on the web of Hoffnung at the Union? I think it is still one of the funniest things ever.Here's the best recording I can find, the whole of the Union speech in 1958.

I don't know how to embed a link on here. Maybe someone can do a better job? It still reduces me to tears of helpless mirth each time I hear it.
