Shelley Berman RIP

No one lives forever -- except, perhaps, Shirley MacLaine. This is where we ring down the final curtain for Filmdom's finest.

Shelley Berman RIP

Another pioneer and terrific stand-up comic, whose importance in the 1950's and 60's is much forgotten now, but his success paved the way for many other stand-up comedians.

Shelley Berman also made a UCLA lecture appearance in 1964 which shows off his skills quite well:

Rest in Peace Shelley.
