Can You Top This?
Can You Top This? is a popular radio panel show in which comedians told jokes. The unrehearsed program, sponsored at one point by Colgate-Palmolive, was created by veteran vaudevillian ”Senator” Edward Ford, who claimed he was taking part in a joke session at a New York theatrical club when he conceived the idea.
