About Henny Youngman

Henry "Henny" Youngman (March 16, 1906 – February 24, 1998) was a British-born American comedian and musician famous for his mastery of the "one-liner", his best known being "Take my wife... please".
In a time when many comedians told elaborate anecdotes, Youngman's routine consisted of telling simple one-liner jokes, occasionally with interludes of violin playing. These depicted simple, cartoon-like situations, eliminating lengthy build-ups and going straight to the punch line. Known as "the King of the One-Liners", a title conferred to him by columnist Walter Winchell, a stage performance by Youngman lasted only 15 to 20 minutes but contained dozens of jokes in rapid succession.
