My father was ruined by hard drink - he sat on an icicle.
My wife said, 'Can my mother come down for the weekend?' So I said, 'Why?' And she said, 'Well, she's been up on the roof two weeks already.'
I'd never be unfaithful to my wife for the reason that I love my house very much.
I was a born club comic. Radio and TV and stage were fine, but I found my real home in cabaret.

They all laughed when I said I wanted to be a comedian. Well, they're not laughing now.
Although I have always loved the noise of laughter, I really can't fear the coming of quiet. As for funerals, I rather like them. Such nice things are always said about the deceased, I feel sad that they had to miss hearing it all by just a few days.
