The first name in monologues

That would be Bob, as in Bob "Who are you calling a legend?" Hope, who died yesterday, and Susanna Cornett, one of those unpretentious mountain-type persons I was talking about, has a lovely tribute to the man who invented stand-up comedy.

I never managed to see the man in person, and the closest I ever got to him was when I walked past his Palm Springs home's driveway in about '78.

I've always, however, enjoyed his performances.

RIP, Bob.
