He's actually pretty funny there.

Amazing! Absolutely hysterical! And the apples didn't fall far from the tree when you learn that this man has two sons, both of whom are two of the funniest people on this planet -- Albert Brooks and Bob Einstein (aka "Super Dave Osborne"). I do believe that if Harry hadn't died that night, then he would have soon gotten his own national TV show. Desi Arnaz, who you could hear laughing hysterically, would have seen to it. I don't know where or how you got this clip, Kliph, but thank you SO MUCH. I always wanted to hear it.

Thanks, Kliph. Every account of Einstein's death said he killed that night. Nice to finally know that they weren't just being kind.

Is there a story behind finding this audio?

I think there's no question where this post came from. Albert Brooks always maintained that his father did one of the best sets ever immediately before his death and now he's proven it. I was laughing out loud as hard as the 1958 crowd, this was so funny.
