JONATHAN WINTERS: BIRTH OF A COMEDY GENIUS
From his early break-through as a regular on the NBC COMEDY HOUR, to his prolific work on the STEVE ALLEN/DINAH SHORE/JACK PAAR shows, and his own short-lived 15 minute series THE JONATHAN WINTERS SHOW, the man literally re-invented the concept of “live” comedy.
