Born over a century ago, Red Skelton was an entertainer above all other things. He had a wide and varying career that spanned radio shows, vaudeville acts and even burlesque performances.

Wherever Red brought his talents, he kept audiences smiling with his cheerful jokes and winning personality. This was especially true when he launched The Red Skelton Show, which later became The Red Skelton Hour.

For many listeners and viewers, it was that wide appeal that set Red Skelton apart from other comedians. Certain entertainers were meant for adults, but Red Skelton was a family-friendly alternative.
