"I'm happy to be here. At my age I'm happy to be anywhere." Thus did octogenarian George Burns launch virtually every one of his personal appearances of the 1970s and 1980s.

Overview

"I'm happy to be here. At my age I'm happy to be anywhere." Thus did octogenarian George Burns launch virtually every one of his personal appearances of the 1970s and 1980s. While many of Burns' jokes concern his age, the fact that the man was literally a product of another century never intrudes upon the proceedings. Good humor never really dates, nor does George Burns, despite his reminiscences of his years with his late wife/partner Gracie Allen and his fondness for singing songs like "I'll be Waiting for You Bill at the Top of San Juan Hill." When George Burns in Concert was taped in 1982, George still had another full decades' worth of SRO appearances before him.
