I'm embarrassed to say that, when I saw this on Facebook earlier, I thought it might be one of those not-infrequent cases of people posting a years-old obituary -- it's so long since I though of Berman, I assumed he must be long-dead. Apparently I just don't watch the right TV shows; a glance at IMDB tells me he remained active a long time, till infirmity caught up with him.

It may be I felt this way -- that he must be long gone -- because his heyday was even before my years of awareness. I can't clearly recall much adult-world stuff before 1959, which was about his peak time. I certainly remember hearing his name a lot -- like Dick Gregory, he used to be REALLY famous -- but I thought of him as mostly someone before my time.
