Garry Moore /jimmy Durante Bing Crosby

Gary MooreJimmy Durante and Garry Moore appeared on the Camel Comedy Caravan as a comedy team where Garry Moore played the straight man. They teamed up in 1943 purely by accident. The Comedy Caravan was a comedy show with music featuring about six comedians beginning with a new guy, in this case Garry Moore, and ending with an established comedian. Durante and Moore were teamed up purely by chance. The director of that 1943 show thought the contrast between the new kid and the old vet would be magic.

Jimmy DuranteAt first, neither knew what to think of the other. Eventually they became comfortable with one another and relaxed. The show worked because Durante was a generous performer and Moore was eager to learn. In the late 1940s Moore left the show to go into television while Durante continued on the radio.

For more comedy fun, check out these shows: Arthur Godfrey, Bergen and McCarthy, Bing Crosby, Bob and Ray, Bob Hope, Burns and Allen, Down Allen's Alley, Ethel and Albert, Eve Arden Collection, Fibber McGee and Molly, Jack Benny, Jimmy Durante Collection, Milton Berle Show, Red Skelton, and Spike Jones.

    COMMENTS

    Jimmy Durante and Garry Moore seem an unlikely pair, but their radio show was a big hit. Durante looks as old in this photo as he did 20 years later, when he made frequent TV appearances.

    In 1942, Garry Moore hosted a new program on NBC. The Show Without a Name was an effort to crack the morning show dominance of Arthur Godfrey (CBS) and Don McNeil's Breakfast Club (ABC). A prize of $500 ($5,642 in 2013 dollars) was offered to name the show and Someone came up with the title, Everything Goes.
