Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Bob Hope

Leslie Townes Hope, known professionally as Bob Hope, was an English American stand-up comic and actor. His career spanned nearly 80 years. His theme song was “Thanks for the Memory” and he was not too thankful, but still gracious, that I woke him up. We’ll hear how he picked up his material, his marriage, some heat he got on a line he did, Oscars, his home in Palm Springs, his overseas tours, and what makes him laugh.
