Henny Youngman Still
King Of One Liners

MICHAEL ELKIN

NO COUPON NECESSARY!

76

Henny Youngman's violin is his "trademark partner."

Special to The Jewish News

T

here is one one-liner
Henny Youngman nev-
er wanted to hear
come true: "Take my wife .. .
please!"
But after 58 years of mar-
riage, Sadie Youngman died
recently, leaving the fast-
quipping Henny without a
gag to fall back on.
The loss is felt deeply by
Youngman, who routinely
made his wife the butt of
jokes and stories. In real life,
there was nothing routine
about their strong marriage
— she was a buttress, a
supporter.
Even near the end, he
recalls, she only wanted him
to do what he does best —
make people laugh. "I had an
opportunity to appear on
Hollywood Squares," says
Youngman of the popular
television game show. "I came
to her and asked her. She was
in bed and couldn't talk, but
she nodded her head that I
should leave and go on the
show.
"You have to carry_on," says
the 81-year-old Youngman.
Hurt and sorrow are left at
the stage door, says
Youngman. "Nothing affects
you when you're on stage."
Off stage, the King of the
One-Liners admits the world
is nothing to laugh at right
now. "The world is crazy," he
bellows. "I'm very frighten-
ed."
He is not scared of losing
his sense of timing. "I was
funny naturally," says
Youngman of his early start
in the business. But it is more

than talent, he says, that has
helped him "shtick" around.
"I was a nervy guy."
He gets around, but that's
part of his background. This
"nervy guy" was born in Lon-
don's Jewish Hospital;
parents Jonkel and Olga
Jungman and little Henny
then took off for America,
where Henny then learned
violin, his trademark partner
on stage.
His pluck led him to the
printing business, producing
business cards at 5 and lOs in
Brooklyn and New York pen-
ny arcades.
Henny honed his comic
capers in the Catskills. "Hey,
did you hear the one about
the 80-year-old caddy? This
guy says, 'If I use you as my
caddy, are you sure you'll be
able to tell me where the ball
goes?' Of course,' says the
caddy. 'I have perfect
eyesight.'
"So the golfer whacks the
ball, turns to the caddy and
says, 'Well, where did it go?'
The caddy says, 'I forget.' "
