One of the Funniest “Drunks,” EVER!!
When I was a kid, my parents liked to watch various tv variety shows like Dean Martin, Joey Bishop, Jackie Gleason, Carol Burnett…. most of which, you’ve never heard of! One of my personal favorites who routinely guested on the aforementioned shows was Foster Brooks. A hel-u-va comic was he, with his schtick as a drunk in various occupations!!
