Shelley Berman!

Actor and comedian Shelley Berman had a patented one-way telephone conversation for the last time today, at the age of 92! A Chicago native and performer with the Goodman Theatre and the Compass Players (which eventually became Second City), Berman was a hugely successful comedian in the ’50s and ’60s, becoming the first stand-up to play Carnegie Hall, and won the first Grammy given for Spoken Word comedy (at the 2nd Annual awards) for Inside Shelley Berman. He was also a very accomplished stage and screen actor, picking up an Emmy nomination in recent years for his work as Larry’s dad on Curb Your Enthusiasm, and making guest appearances on shows like Boston Legal, L.A. Law, Entourage, Friends, and (going way back) Car 54, Where Are You?, among others.

The commissioner nabs an eighth death of the year, sliding me to third only one point back of the Buonins! Happy birthday to me!
