Anyone here remember Joe the Bartender with Crazy Guggenheim?

Joe the Bartender was created by Jackie to provide a vehicle for tales of his real-life pals from Brooklyn. Forever spinning his expansive yarns to unseen customer Mr. Dennehy, Joe showcases Gleason's gift for holding the audience's attention with a brilliantly-executed monologue.

1. Good grief, you must be as old as I am. I hadn't heard those

names in a long time.

2. Yep, I remember this bit on the Jackie Gleason show.


I was a kid and then teen ager, but I watched faithfully with my parents every time the show was on! A couple of other favorites from that time......Ed Sullivan and the Red Skelton Show. Never missed them!

Sid Cesar and Imogene Coca. Those two were born to work together.

6. Oh, my. That takes me back a few years.

I hadn't thought of those characters in a long time. We used to watch the show every week when I was growing up. My favorite show of the genre was Red Skelton.

9. TV at it's best IMHO--Gleason was a true genius! Husband and I bought a bunch of "The Honeymooners"

shows and we never get tired of watching them. Thanks for sharing a great memory. BTW, how about Jackie as The Poor
Soul. This is the stuff that makes
getting old easier--great memories!

10. One of my favorite Gleason characters

 

One of my favorite Gleason characters was The Poor Soul, done completely in pantomime. It was a testament to his genius in physical comedy.
