Charlie Manna

Biography: New Yorker Charlie started out as a stand-up comedian in the late 50's. Following the example set by Bob Newhart, the new "polite" comedian set forth with a marvelous zany monologue and incorporated his beautiful tenor voice into his act. He had started out as an aspiring Opera singer when he caught the comic bug. In a version of the death of Caesar, Charlie has Caesar standing in the Forum hearing senatorial complaints. One comes from Cassius, who thinks there should be a month named after him. That would be ludicrous, retorts Caesar, whetting Cassius' blade. "Thirty days hath September, April, Cassius, and November." Charlie had a few successful comedy albums with "Manna Overboard!" and "The Rise and Fall of the Great Society". He appeared on numerous variety, talk programs until cancer claimed his life at the age of 51.
