Henny Youngman investing jokes...


Recommended Posts

Here is a story about how Henny Youngman earned money when he found himself unbooked on Saturday nights when he was home in NYC...


He would take his fiddle and go to some hotel that had banquet rooms.  He'd consult the daily directory in the lobby and find a party — usually a Bar Mitzvah reception — and he would go up to the room and ask to speak to whoever was paying for the party.  "I'm Henny Youngman," he would tell that person.  "I was playing a date in another banquet room here and one of the waiters suggested you might want to have me do my act for your gathering here."  He would negotiate whatever price he could get — $200, $500, preferably in cash — and he would do his act for them.
