  • The Hillcrest Round Table, or "Comedian's Round Table", was a group of Jewish comedians who met daily at a particular round table at the Men's Grill of the Hillcrest Country Club in Los Angeles. The group included (from oldest to youngest): Al Jolson 1886-1950 Chico Marx 1887-1961 Harpo Marx 1888-1964 Groucho Marx 1890-1977 Eddie Cantor 1892-1964 Gummo Marx 1892-1977 Lou Holtz 1893-1980 Jack Benny 1894-1974 George Burns 1896-1996 George Jessel 1898-1981 Zeppo Marx 1901-1979 Al Ritz 1901-1965 Jimmy Ritz 1904-1985 Harry Ritz 1907-1986 Milton Berle 1908-2002 Danny Kaye 1913-1987 Danny Thomas 1914-1991 Arthur Marx wrote, In the heyday of the Round Table, in the '40s, '50s and '60s, it was probably the most amusing place to lunch in all the world. Imagine sitting at a table with that group, each one trying to out-funny the other, and all but Harpo, Chico and Danny Kaye puffing on long, fragrant Havanas. If you didn't die laughing, you could have choked on the smoke. " Each comedian had to have an actual membership in the country club. George Burns, the penultimate surviving member, was also one of the first in the group to join. His original membership fee was $300. With Milton Berle's death in 2002, all members had died.
