Bennett Cerf-1945




Joined a nifty new Facebook group dedicated to the classic intelligent game show, WHAT'S MY LINE? This prompted me to look up stuff on the series and I found this fascinating 1945 LIFE article on panelist Bennett Cerf--publisher, author, collector and compiler of jokes and funny stories, the man sort of responsible for making both James Joyce and Dr. Seuss household words.

His son Christopher befriended Jim Henson and Michael K. Frith while at Harvard. (Frith illustrated some of the elder Cerf's later books, and worked on the Muppet Show.)
