I understand that he wrote the well-known gag about hippies for then-governor Reagan: "A hippie is someone who talks like Tarzan, looks like Jane, and smells like Cheetah." What a charmer.

Sometimes I wish that lovable onscreen characters never did anything offscreen at all. Put 'em in a coffin like a vampire until their next show. That way there'd be no ugly jokes, drunken insults, child abuse, assaults, murders, presidential administrations, etc., to taint the onscreen image.

estiv, the ideal performer you describe has existed for decades. It's called a ventriloquist's dummy. Having worked with them, I can attest to their admirable qualities.
