Actor, comedian, screenwriter, author, musician
I was happy with where I grew up. I really loved it—the beach, being near Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm. I was able to become a performer there.
It was all part of my young, youthful history.
I began my career at the magic shop at Disneyland … class of 1960. Magician, prestidigitator, and seller of fake vomit.
