Danny Kaye (1913 - 1987)

Singing-actor, dancer, comedian, writer and all-round entertainer David Daniel Kaminsky was born in Brooklyn,NY, on 18 January 1913. His Ukrainian Jewish immigrant parents had ambitions for their son to join the medical profession, but an innate talent for buffoonery and the quick-fire retort apparent from David’s earliest years prevailed until, more inclined to the stage, he dropped out of high school and in 1929 hit the road to Florida with his stage-partner Louis Eilson. Returning to New York the duo, now dubbed Red & Blackie, performed at select evening functions whilst maintaining their ‘dayjobs’: Danny worked variously as barman, waiter and inspector for a motor insurance company. Later, the duo worked summer seasons at holiday camps on the ‘Borscht Circuit’ in the Catskill Mountains, until 1933, when Danny joined vaudeville dancers David Harvey and Kathleen Young, to form The Three Terpsichoreans. After a five-month US tour the trio sailed for the Far East, and there Kaye truly learned his trade, performing to non-English-speaking Chinese, Japanese and Malayan audiences.
