Milton Berle

Some time ago, I saw an old RKO comedy movie where one of the actors was the (then) youthful Milton Berle, a comedian who later became famous for being the comic most likely to “recycle” other comedians’ jokes.

Not knowing much otherwise about Mr Berle (often know as “Uncle Miltie”), I looked him up in Wikipedia (see the link later in this message). Another of his claims to fame was that he was the first major star on US television (in 1948’s Texaco Star Theater).

His most controversial claim to fame, however, was apparently the size of his …er… the magnitude of his …um…. Well, you can read all about him on Wikipedia.

And so to the clerihew….
