Tuesday Tunes: Happy Birthday, Robert Klein

I would like to wish a happy birthday to actor and comedian Robert Klein who is 69 today!
Klein is famous for including musical numbers into his comedy shows, and one of his audience favorites is the brilliant (and silly) "I Can't Stop My Leg."

In 1979, Klein was nominated for a Tony for Best Actor in the Carol Bayer Sager/ Marvin Hamlisch musical They're Playing Our Song opposite Lucie Arnaz.

In his recent Unfair and Unbalanced comedy special, Klein again relied upon music to convey some advice to newly-elected President Barack Obama. (Mildly not safe for work)

Good advice, Mr. Klein, thanks and Happy Birthday, sir.
