Here’s a quote (possibly overheard in Philadelphia) from Lynn on the Reubens that didn’t make the GoComics story:

Did you ever see Bil Keane when he was MC?  Wow. What a skill he had for comedy. He worked hard on his “roast” and the result was hilarious and truthful, but kind …  two gags I can remember are:  “Ahhh, Mell Lazarus: He has so many lines on his forehead, he can screw on his hat!” and … “Arnold Roth: The only man I ever knew who called out his own name when he was making love.” We never asked how he got this information, but Bil had his resources. 

Disclosure: Andrews McMeel owns both the Daily Cartoonist and GoComics.
