The comedy channels on XM Radio sometimes play long wartime cuts of his, and if all you remember is the doddering old golfer on NBC, it's worth seeking that stuff out.

I enjoyed the Gopnik piece even if it sometimes subjects the various 20th century comics to more analysis than I think the subject bears; this is The New Yorker, after all, and you can't just file a 50-word piece that says "sometimes he was funny, and sometimes he wasn't."
