Greatest Closing Line

Ventriloquist Edgar Bergen passed away in September of 1978.

The night before he passed, he gave what was to be his last performance at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas before retirement. Sadly, he never lived to enjoy the retirement, passing peacefully in his sleep.

At performance’s end, he closed with these lines.

“Every vaudeville act must have an opening and a closing, so I’ll pack my jokes and my little friends…and say…goodbye”

Every performer should go out with such class.
