From the royal family of entertainment, we proudly present the illustrious Bill Maher and Stubby Kaye. Born in New York City, William Maher was raised in the Catholic faith by his Irish father, a radio announcer, and his Jewish mother, a nurse. After studying at Cornell University, he found success as a stand-up comedian, performing in a Chinese restaurant on Route 17 in Paramus, New Jersey, and eventually at Catch a Rising Star. Meanwhile, Bernard Katzin, better known as Stubby Kaye, rose to fame as a comedian, vaudeville performer, and USO entertainer, before finally achieving success on Broadway with the musical hit "Guys and Dolls". With his lovable tenor voice, he won audiences over with his show-stoppers "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat" and "Fugue for Tinhorns". Together, the two have established a reputation as two of the most beloved entertainers of all time.
