Death: Mar. 21, 1946
Hollywood
Los Angeles County

Radio comedian. Recalled for portraying the character of Beulah on the Fibber McGee and Molly show (before a spinoff of Hurt's own broadcast was produced), ironic in that Beulah was the McGee's black maid and Hurt was a white man. Beulah was a character in the "Aunt Jemima" vein, described as "a simple-minded but well-meaning meddler." Beulah's most famous entrance catch-phrase was "Sombody bawl fo' Beulah?" when the name was yelled for, guaranteed to get the audience howling. Hurt died unexpectedly before completion of the first season of "Beulah." (bio by: Theologianthespian)
