Genre: Variety

Red Skelton (July 18, 1913 – September 17, 1997) was an American comedian who was best known as a top radio and television star from 1937 to 1971. Skelton's show business career began in his teens as a circus clown and went on to vaudeville, Broadway, films, radio, TV, night clubs and casinos, all while pursuing another career as a painter. Skelton, who has stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his radio and television work, is quoted as saying, "I just want to be known as a clown, because to me that's the height of my profession. It means you can do everything—sing, dance and above all, make people laugh."

On October 1, 1938, Skelton replaced Red Foley as the host of Avalon Time on NBC; his first wife Edna also joined the show's cast. Skelton continued as the show's host until late 1939, when he went on to begin his MGM movie career.
