WHERE THERE'S COMEDY ,THERE'S HOPE!!! - THE BOB HOPE BUICK SHOW- NBC-TV - CIRCA OCTOBER 8, 1959
It is rare that you can present a superlative entertainer who is so universally recognized and respected as a comedy icon, that there really is no need to tell his back story.
Do we need to say anything more than 'BOB HOPE?"
Born Leslie Townes Hope on May 27, 1903 in London,England, Bob Hope was a pioneer, an innovator and a household name. In 1908, Hope's family migrated to Ohio and for most of his 100 years,the Bristol-born, multi-talented Bob Hope was viewed as an American original.
While he achieved stardom on Broadway, in Vaudeville, on the Silver Screen, in Radio and on Television, he may be best recalled for his selfless dedication to the American Military. In war and peace, here at home and around the globe, the committed comedian entertained all who served the United States, our allies and the cause of Freedom.
Indefatigable, on and off stage, Hope was a superstar in the 1940's, 50's and 60's. Posted below, from the MOPSHIA15 You Tube site, is a prime example of Old Ski Nose in the spotlight.
Here is the BOB HOPE BUICK SHOW from Fall of 1959. Enjoy!!!!!
