Bob Hope
Comedy (1935 - 55)

Publicity photo of Bob HopeBefore being a comedian, Bob Hope was a boxer known as Packy East.

Bob HopeThe Bob Hope Show was similar to the Bing Crosby Show. Like Crosby, he came to radio early and stayed late. He shared with Crosby an ability with words, a glibness, a keen intelligence. They did not however share their styles. Crosby on the air was slow and mellow: Hope was a machine gun, constantly firing off jokes.

Showcased in the show were the likes of James Melton, Jane Froman, Jack Kirkwood, Patricia Wilder, Betty Hutton, Johnny Mercer, Maureen O'Hara, and Frank Parker. The Pepsodent Show with Yehudi became intertwined with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson but all along, Hope was definitely the star. No one had ever told jokes quite like Bob Hope. His monologues were rapid-fire blasts of comedy, extremely topical and wildly appreciated by all of his audiences.
