Comedy Classics: Henny Youngman on Dick Clark Live


It's been more than a year since we posted a stand-up comedy routine by Henny Youngman, the king of the one-liners. If you remember Henny, it's probably for his most famous line, "Take my wife, please." But Henny was much more than that one joke. He could deliver the one-liners, one after another in rapid succession.

In 1988 Henny appeared on the Dick Clark Live show, and delivered a barrage of jokes that had the audience laughing nonstop. This is a different set of jokes from the ones we posted last year and runs about five minutes. In this set, he jokes about his wife, Tammy Baker, his recent trip, President Bush, the Carnegie Deli, Italian people, his doctor, and his grandson.

Enjoy!
