The great Joe E Lewis! After a mob hit he survived in Chicago, he became a comedian and was chronicled by Frank Sinatra in The Joker is Wild.
Always started his act with “ It is now post time “!
Saw him at Beverly Hills in Newport in late 1950s. His other stock line was “you can lead a horse to water, but if you can get him to roll over and do the backstroke you have something”!
