As I chime in, again, on Steve Allen, I am curious just how much
credit the history books will give him for making "funny" by joining
the inventions of Marconi and Bell.  And you have to give credit to
the courage it must have taken for him to part ways with concepts when
he was on top versus the back nine to the dog track.
