Here's Duffy

Show Summary

Here's Duffy is a Canadian variety series starring Jack Duffy, originally from Montreal, Quebec. Duffy had his start as a singer/actor on CBC, and then toured and performed across America for two years with the Tommy Dorsey Band. His skill as a singer, comic, and impressionist, as well as his regular appearances on the Wayne and Shuster Show and other CBC variety shows finally earned him his own series. Here's Duffy ran from June 1958 to October 1959 every Friday night, a weekly half-hour of music and comedy. Supporting cast was provided by Jill Foster and The Crescendoes, a two-man, two-woman quartet, and music arranger Ed Karam and his orchestra. Jack Duffy subsequently collaborated with Dinah Christie and Billy Van in comedy show Party Game. Duffy was also featured on the Bobby Vinton Show and appeared in a number of films, including Ghost Mom and A Killing Spring, and provided voice work for children's TV series Curious George.
