My first comic, Latabàr Kàlman, the smaller and funnier guy, in this Hungarian video. I have seen him in a film and laughed and laughed, when I was only ten, during the war. It was 67 years ago, and he was no more young but so funny! In this one, with his brother, first he does "Standup" jokes, a few oneliner jokes, that get a great audience reaction, yes, "standup comedy", before the name was invented. Then they sing from an operetta and dance. Yes, variety was not invented a few years ago!

Small and thin, and playing often the underdog, he was so funny and I did love him when I was only ten!
