Another one of those entertainers whose death provokes the reaction, "I didn't even know he was still alive!"

Truly, that was a long-lived guy.

I listened to his episode of Marc Maron's podcast on a flight a couple of years ago and it's a lot of fun. My favorite exchange:

MARON: Now, you were in World War II--
ALLEN: On OUR side!

Probably the only other act I can remember from the Beatles' Ed Sullivan Show debut. No mean feat!

You mean you've already forgotten Acker Bilk and "Acker's Lacquer"? And Mitzi Gaynor? And those outdoor trapeze artists who flub their first try? Shame on you!
