Question # 44

A popular comedian during the 1970s, X was born to parents of Italian and Scottish heritage (X is particularly fond of discussing the Italian part) in New Rochelle, NY, but was raised in Andover, MA.

During the year in which he was establishing his standup career, X was performing 300 nights throughout North America. He made his television debut on the Merv Griffin Show and his acting debut in Silver Bears (1977). That year he appeared in the cast of the short-lived Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr. Show, a musical variety summer replacement series.

By the early '80s, X had left behind any notion of becoming an actor because his comedy career was in high gear. His subsequent film appearances have been as himself or as a parody of himself (The Flintstones, 1994). X made his first appearance on The Tonight Show on March 2, 1977. Though he can be sharp and is an astute political commentator, there is something nice and comforting about the soft-eyed, lantern-jawed funnyman that appeals to vast middle-American audiences, the same sort who regularly tuned in to Carson. It is small wonder that X became Carson's sole guest host by 1987.

X hosted his first show on May 25, 1992, with comedian Billy Crystal as his first guest.

Whose character profile is this? Sitter.
