Damn! I haven't heard his name in years and just assumed he had passed away.

One of the absolute funniest acts I have ever seen. Each time just seemed to get better weirder more disturbing. And funny.

Happy Birthday Worlds Foremost Authority!

Corey was born in 1914 in Brooklyn, New York.[2] Poverty-stricken, his parents were forced to place him in the Hebrew Orphan Asylum of New York, where Corey remained until his early teens, when he rode the rails out to California, and enrolled himself at Belmont High School in Los Angeles.[2] During the Great Depression he worked for the Civilian Conservation Corps and, while working his way back East, became a featherweight Golden Gloves boxing champion.

Jeevus, this guy has done more by the age of twenty than most people do in their lifetime.

Huck And Molly Ziegler: I assume he was on a lot of Carson episodes.


FTFA:  "Corey never returned to Late Night with David Letterman after his first appearance in 1982, which he claimed was a result of the blacklist still being in effect."

They have found comedians do live longer on average.

Never heard of him.

He was the nutty preacher-type at the beginning of the "Rock Box" video by Run-DMC. :)

That really wasn't right.

Ignorant would be more accurate.
