Bruce Adler

Performer

"As for Mr. Adler, what is there that this anchor man can't do?" wrote Richard F. Shepard in The New York Times. "He kazotskys, he soft-shoes, he fandangos, or something in reasonable facsimile. He makes the oldest jokes fresh and funny in his nonstop hoofer break-two-three-four vaudeville routine, 'Hootsatsa.' He plays the bemused restaurant customer who can't find anything to eat in a Sholom Aleichem skit. Yiddish, English, whatever, he sets a funny pace."
