This star has faded somewhat. His career spanned decades — TV, films, nightclubs mostly. He has sung in the past but is not really remembered as a serious recording artist. Along with his famous A+ friends, he used to take to the stage and entertain people. He was an internationally famous star. So a charitable organization in Toronto decided it would ask this comedian to perform on stage to raise money for a charity. The multi-talented star demanded $50,000 for one night, and the charity agreed. A date was set. Tickets sold out in no time.
