We are living in the machine age. For the first time in history the comedian has been compelled to supply himself with jokes and comedy material to compete with the machine. Whether he knows it or not, the comedian is on a treadmill to oblivion.
Fred Allen

Television is the triumph of machine over people.

All I know about humor is that I don't know anything about it.

A gentleman is any man who wouldn't hit a woman with his hat on.
