Milton Berle Show, Volume 1Streaming Audiobook - 2016
His comedy was once described by Time Magazine as the acme of hysterical vulgarity and, for more than seventy years, Milton Berle never lost his taste for good old-fashioned bust-a-gut laughs. But it took the veteran performer the better part of two decades to find a radio format that genuinely suited him and, when he did, the result was The Milton Berle Show, a 1947-48 NBC series that stands today as one of the bright spots of post-war radio. The series takes a satirical approach that pokes as much fun at Berle's boorish stage persona as it does the targets of the satire. In volume 1 each show salutes some current pop-culture phenomenon in broadly played topical sketches that feature the antics of Arnold Stang, comic harridan Pert Kelton, and character actor Jack Albertson.
