Bishop had the honor of being the Master of Cermonies at President John F Kennedy's Inaugeral Gala in 1961.

Remembering Frank Sinatra: "I called him about a year ago when I heard he was sick, and I said, 'Frank, if you're just tired, and you're not really sick, I will never speak to you again.' I tried to only call when I had something I thought would cheer him up ... The Rat Pack was all about fun, and illness isn't fun ... I think he's in heaven now and they're happy he's singin' again." --Joey Bishop in Los Angeles Times, May 16, 1998.

About the alleged wildness of the Rat Pack: "I hope I don't offend anybody, okay? What you are hearing and seing now about the Rat Pack is hearsay. I have been married 57 years. I never had a drink of liquor in my life except for wine at the Passover services. Dean [Martin] didn't drink. He played golf every morning at 8:30 with Nicky Hilton. Five thousand dollars a game they played. You can't drink and play golf like that and then do two shows at night, you understand? I never saw Frank [Sinatra] drunk. I never saw Dean drunk. I never saw Sammy [Davis Jr] drunk." --Bishop to People, August 3, 1998.
