Great Stand-up Celebrates Entertainer Since 20 Years
Youthful on-screen character and comic Lonow had evidently not got this notice. With Friedman looking on, Lonow propelled into an involved impersonation of a wild chimp, tearing over the stage, wavering on the edge, and swinging over the club from the light bars overhanging the crowd.
"I was irate," Friedman says. "I was so steamed I couldn't even watch whatever is left of his demonstration."
Actually, the two got to be accomplices two years after the fact. From various perspectives, it was a fitting begin to an association that has weathered more than its offer of odd turns and upbeat mischances, much like the one that brought forth the first Improv a large portion of a century prior.
