Richard Bernard “Red” Skelton (July 18, 1913-17 September 1997) was an American comedian and star of radio and television between 1937 and 1971.

Red Skelton’s Biography
Born in Vincennes, Indiana, Skelton was the son of a clown from the Hagenbeck-Wallace circus named Joe, who died in 1913 shortly after the birth of his son. Precisely Skelton began in the show working in the same circus. Before that, however, he met the worm of acting at 10 years of age thanks to the actor Ed Wynn, who had seen him sell newspapers in front of the Pantheon Theater in Vincennes, trying to help his family. After buying all his newspapers, Wynn took the boy to the theater and introduced him to the members of the show he was touring with. At 15 years of age, Skelton took to the road as an artist, working in all kinds of shows, such as medicine shows, vaudeville, burlesque, theater boats, minstrel shows (shows with a face painted black) and circus. While performing in Kansas City (Missouri) in 1930, Skelton met and married his first wife, Edna Stillwell. The couple divorced 13 years later, although Stillwell remained one of its leading writers.
