Mickey Katz Knows Herring

Mickey Katz (June 15, 1909 - April 30, 1985) was an American Jewish comedian who received his first moments of fame in the 1940s as a member of Spike Jones and His City Slickers. He later went on to perform his own parodic musical revue and recorded highly popular “ethnic” comedy albums on the Capitol record label, where he would perform English-Yiddish parody songs.

Growing up in the 60s, our family listened to Mickey constantly and one of our all-time favorite songs was "Herring Boats". Check it out................
