Photograph inscribed and signed: "to George -/all my best/Joey Adams". B/w, 7x9. The career of American comedian Adams (1911-1999), born Joseph Abramowitz, spanned six decades. Adams honed his comedic skills working the borscht belt in the summer during the 1930s, where he developed his signature style of rapid-fire, cynical one-liners. He was also a long-time humor columnist for the New York Post (he married future Post gossip columnist Cindy Adams while working there) and wrote over 20 books, including From Gags to Riches, Joey Adams Joke Book, Laugh Your Calories Away, Here's to the Friars, How to Save the Earth with Laughter and Encyclopedia of Humor. He appeared many times on TV, with numerous appearances on Toast of the Town in the early 1950s and 1960s; he also hosted a radio talk show on New York City's WEVD. Adams was president of the American Guild of Variety Artists and, in 1961, toured Southeast Asia for five months with other performers as part of President John F. Kennedy's Cultural Exchange Program. This tour is detailed in his book On the Road for Uncle Sam. Signature light and beaded but legible. Corners creased and lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
