Historical Who is Who
1889 - 1997
England, United States, Switzer
Comic genius; ‘slapstick’ with serious intent. Generally seen as representing the ‘underdog’, specifically exposing the likes of Adolf Hitler. Suspicious of ‘the American way of life’ but only questionably warranting his investigation as Communist agitator. Sexually adventurous and serially married.
