Sad, but true....Benny, Burns, Berle, Gleason, Hope, Skelton and others had a "larger than life" quality about them.
Somehow when I look at the current crop of comedians hanging out at the Friars' Club (Jerry Seinfeld, Drew Carey, Paul Reiser, etc.) they just don't have that "larger than life" quality that the "old masters" had.
