Actor, Comedian. He was a comic actor whose career spanned show business from vaudeville theatre, silent motion pictures, radio and television programs, to Broadway theatre, and Las Vegas, Nevada, shows. His career began at the age of 5 on the streets of upper Manhattan, New York City, New York, where he did Charlie Chaplin imitations to entertain other children. An agent saw him and found work for him as the "Buster Brown" boy, selling shoes. Charlie Chaplin heard about him and sent for him, and he appeared in several of his silent comedic films. He began in Broadway in 1920 on a musical called "Floradora," then worked vaudeville. His first credited film was "The Perils of Pauline" (1914), the first of over 70 films made over the course of his lifetime. He successfully made the transition to television in 1948, with "The Milton Berle Show," which ran for nearly ten years. He last acted in 1994, but still made cameo appearances for the last several years. He was considered one of the first persons to appear on television in 1928 during an experimental broadcast in New York City. He also wrote 3 books about himself.
