"I want to thank you very, very much for the wonderful piece you did on our show. This is by far the most space I have ever received in the Herald Tribune. It made me happy to think that our little show warranted that much attention. For the forthcoming season I'll not attempt to "kill the people" (borrowing a familiar phrase), but only try to come up with a few laughs. I would be most anxious to know what you think of our efforts. Gratefully, Red Skelton." Folding creases and a slight water stain; overall in fine condition. 7 x 10.25 inches (18.1 x 26.2 cm).Â An interesting letter from the American comedian best known as a top radio and television star from 1937 to 1971. After starting his show-business career in his teens as a circus clown, Skelton went on to vaudeville, Broadway, films, radio, TV, night clubs and casinos, while pursuing a separate career as a painter.
