Comedy Down Memory Lane: Another Stand-up Routine From Myron Cohen in 1951


In January we posted an old comedy clip by veteran comedian Myron Cohen from a performance in 1978. If you think that was old, take a look at this recently discovered longer routine which Cohen performed on The Kate Smith Show back in 1951.

In this video, Cohen touches on the immigrant experience in New York, Florida, and California, delivering his jokes with thick Yiddish and Italian accents.

Enjoy!
