London Lee was fairly well-known in the mid-60s; at least as well known as a handful of appearances on Sullivan, Carson, Bishop, etc. could make you. His act (and what I've heard of it was pitiful) was centered around jokes about his wealthy family (his old man being some kind of big deal in the garment district back then). By 1970, his days of national exposure were behind him and his career took up more or less permanent residence in the Catskills.

I think he still performs, too.

He was so lame I actually remember him!
Thank-you for reminding me?
