EDDIE CANTOR SHOW
EDDIE CANTOR SHOW
Pop-eyed and boundlessly energetic, Eddie Cantor was the first of vaudeville's top stars to take radio by storm. This high-spirited singer and comedian changed the rules of radio by encouraging participation from the studio audience, something that had always been strictly prohibited. The talents of his fun-loving co-stars, including Harry Einstein (as the Greek, Nick Parkyakakas), Bert Gordon (as The Mad Russian), and Hattie McDaniel, helped to make the show a success. Occasionally, Cantor would show his range as a performer by taking on a serious topic, using his show as a platform to explore difficult social issues and matters related to the war. Cantor, a bit of a talent scout, also used his show to host the first radio appearances of Gracie Allen, Dinah Shore, Esther Williams, his own co-star Harry Einstein, and a singer named Bert Parks...who Cantor seemed to think might make a good husband for one of his five daughters!
