Menasha Skulnik
Birth: May 15, 1890, Poland
Death: Jun. 4, 1970
New York, USA

Actor, Entertainer. He was popular radio entertainer, playing 'Uncle David' on the radio program "The Goldbergs" for 19 years, and made many television and theatrical appearances as well, including successful runs in the plays "The Flowering Peach" by Clifford Odets and Harold Rome's "The Zulu and the Zayda". In 1913, he joined a Yiddish stock company in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and began being cast in comedic roles. His diminutive stature, high nasal voice, mannerisms and appearance, made him a natural for comedy, and he was was dubbed the "East Side's Chaplin" by the New York Evening Journal in 1935. (bio by: Ed)
