A vaudeville performer early in his career, he moved to New York City and became a syndicated radio humorist, eventually becoming the host of the NBC program Double or Nothing in 1952. A songwriter, he wrote the lyrics for two Broadway shows, Just a Minute (1928) and George White's Scandals (1935-1936), and composed music for several Hollywood films including Sweet Kitty Bellairs (1930) and Under Fiesta Stars (1941). O'Keefe has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work on the radio.
