He could have done broadcast comedy, though - his fellow Vaudeville/Music Hall b.g. contemporary Buster did.
I agree it'd have been nice if he did, but I strongly suspect Charlie felt uncomfortable doing appearances in contexts where he didn't have total or close to total control.
OK, I realize I'll be the only one here excited about this, but what the heck -- I'm just now listening to the Jack Benny program of February 14, 1943 (recorded in Canada), and was QUITE taken aback when my Native language, Norwegian, was suddenly spoken (through a representative of the Royal Norwegian Air Force).
