Character Quiz


I was thinking about all of the funny and entertaining characters that have been invented by comedians over the years, primarily in the older radio shows.

I've decided to run an occasional quiz giving you the character's names, and let you guess the originator of the character. Any other info you might have regarding the character, the show, and the comedian would also be interesting.

Here's the first group:

1. Mrs. Nussbaum

2. Claude Horribly

3. Wally Ballou

4. Percy Dovetonsils

These are probably way too easy, but we'll see how you do!

I'll post the answers in a few days......

You gotta be a certain age to have the Kovacs exposure, or just lucky - Percy is the only coke-bottle eyeglassed, lisping effeminate, bathrobe wearing funny-mustached character to exist before Hollywood got itself so Ellen DeGenerately.

Dirtcrashr: Absolutely correct! I can't believe no one has gotten the other three, though.

Dirtcrashr,

I was a card carrying member of the Kovac's Early Eyeball Faternal Marching Society back in the mid-50's.
