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. (en)
