Hugh's got the blues and a violin. (2:23)

AND AS GREAT A COMEDIANAS HENNY IS--

HE JUST CELEBRATEDHIS 50th ANNIVERSARY

AS KING OF THE ONE-LINERS--

MAYBE HE SHOULD STEP DOWNBECAUSE, WITH ALL DUE RESPECT

I THINK HENNY'S GETTING A LITTLESENILE WITH THE PUNCH LINES.

( playing simple tune like Youngman )

( as Henny: )"A GUY COMES UP TO MEON THE STREET

SAYS HE HASN'T HAD A BITE IN AWEEK SO I GAVE HIM A SANDWICH."

( laughter )

"I WENT TO THE DOCTOR.

"I SAY, 'DOC, IT HURTSWHEN I GO LIKE THIS.'

DOCTOR SAYS,'MAYBE YOU GOT ARTHRITIS.'"

( laughter )

"MY WIFE IS SO FAT--

WHEN SHE STANDS AROUNDTHE HOUSE, SHE EATS LIKE A PIG."

( laughter )

"A MAN GOESINTO A RESTAURANT:

'WAITER, WHAT'S THIS FLYDOING IN MY SOUP?'

"WAITER SAYS, 'SORRY, WE GOTA PROBLEM WITH INSECTS.'"

( laughter )

"TAKE MY WIFE... FOR EXAMPLE."

( laughter )

( applause and cheering )
