Berle has written the lyrics to many songs, notably the novelty number "Sam, You Made the Pants Too Long".

"My mother had wanted to be an actress. But in those days, being an actress was considered like being a harlot, so she never did it. Instead, she poured all of her drive and passion for show business into me and my career.

I did whatever my mother wanted. I wanted whatever she wanted. She was the ultimate stage mother--she made Gypsy Rose Lee's mother look like Mary Poppins."--Berle quoted in special tribute issue of The Hollywood Reporter, July 1990

Inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame (1984)

He was the first inductee into the International Comedy Hall of Fame (1991)

Berle presides as the Abbot Emeritus of the Friars Club
