BIOGRAPHY:

Milton was educated at New York Professional Children's School, and began performing at age 5. His first stage appearance was in "Florodora"in Atlantic City. He appeared at the Palace Theatre in New York in 1931, then in night clubs and theatres. He appeared in the Broadway musicals "Saluta", "See My Lawyer", and "Ziegfeld Follies of 1943". His television debut was on experimental scanning-wheel television in Chicago in 1929. By 1934 he was on radio.


TRIVIA:
  • Always opened his show by making an entrance in a different costume each week.
  • Credits his survival as a television icon with his 30 year contract with NBC ('Groucho Marx' (qv) once joked about this saying: "30 years with NBC? That's not a contract. That's a sentence!").
  • 'Milton Berle' (qv) described a brief affair with 'Aimee Semple McPherson' (qv) in 1930 in his 1975 autobiography titled, "Milton Berle: An Autobiography".
  • (5 December 1999) Suffered a mild stroke at his home in California.
  • Biography in: "Who's Who in Comedy" by Ronald S. Smith, pg. 46-48. New York: Facts on File, 1992. ISBN 0816023387
  • Brother of 'Phil Berle' (qv).
  • Was a regular on the "Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts".
  • (April 2001) Was diagnosed with a slow-growing cancerous tumor in his colon. Doctors said he did not need surgery and the cancer would take 10 to 12 years to affect him. This turned out to be incorrect, as Berle died less than a year later.
