  • An influential radio humourist who wielded an often unheralded influence on television---in his own work and in the work of those he mentored.

    As the droll husband of his incomparably malapropping wife, Jane, Goodman Ace was a low-keyed but enduring radio presence for over fifteen years, thanks to his creation Easy Aces. The show didn't work on television, but Ace did, forging an influential second career strictly as a writer. (He also trained CBS writers---his proteges included Danny and Neil Simon; his credits include Jack Benny, Milton Berle, Perry Como, and Bob Newhart.) He was also a much-read columnist for Saturday Review and an arch critic of television, but his drollery was never nasty. Today's edge-obsessed vulgarians could learn much from Goodman Ace.moreless
