Henny Youngman

Henry Henny Youngman was an American comedian and violinist famous for his mastery of the oneliner. His best known oneliner was Take my wife160... please.

Youngman was born to a Jewish family in London, England. His family moved to Brooklyn, New York, when he was a child. He grew up in New York City, and began as a comedian after he had worked for years at a print shop, where he wrote comedy cards containing oneline gags. The comedy cards were discovered by upandcoming comedian Milton Berle, who encouraged Youngman and formed a close friendship with him. Berle said about him, The only thing funnier than Hennys jokes is his violin playing.
