“February 15, 1943 – Joe E. Brown came aboard and put on a performance on the fantail for the whole crew. It was terrific and we all enjoyed it very much.” Charles Paty, Radioman 1/c
“I’ll never forget it. Those kids were starved for something to laugh about. All you had to do was walk on the stage, say ‘Spam’ and they’d die laughing. Remember that violinist of mine who dropped his violin overboard?”
Joe E. Brown, 1964 newspaper clipping
Joseph Evans Brown (July 28, 1891 – July 6, 1973) was an actor and comedian remembered for his amiable screen persona, comic timing, and enormous elastic-mouth smile. He was one of the most popular American comedians in the 1930s and 1940s.
