Morey Amsterdam

Biography: Morey Amsterdam began his career in vaudeville in 1922 as the straight man for his brother's jokes. He was an accomplished cello player and used it in his comedy routines. He performed his comedy routine on radio on The Al Pearce Show and nightclubs. Morey had his own self-titled show on radio and television on CBS which ran from 1948-1949. He appeared in several films and other television shows, but he is perhaps best known to audiences as Buddy Sorrell of the 1961-1966 series The Dick Van Dyke Show. Over the years he appeared on many game shows, variety shows and talk shows, always with a joke and a wonderful story. His final appearance was on the television comedy Caroline in the City in 1996.
