His charisma had been on display during a 1983 broadcast when he dressed up as Brazilian singer Carmen Miranda in order to receive a $1,000 gift to the USO.

He expressed his gratitude to his audience by saying: “I simply adore humans. Following that, a large number of speakers on the talk circuit depart. I spend a lot of time schmoozing. I’m as though I’m a dog. You simply open the door, and I go ‘rrrr, rrrr,’ before licking everyone’s face.”
