Often, parents pull out pictures on their iPhones or back in the analog days tattered ones from their wallets to show other people their pride and joy, their children. Today, I get to turn the tables. I get to show my dad off. For Father’s Day, I wrote about the unusual present I gave him. Now, I get to point out that I’m not the only comedian in the family. Yep, my dad (pictured below) is giving me a run for the money, so to speak.
An interview my dad, Alan C. Greenberg aka Ace, did on Bloomberg Television made the rounds and even the headlines of the New York Times. When asked about former Citigroup chairman Sanford I. Weill’s about-face on banking regulations, my dad compared Mr. Weill to Sacha Baron Cohen, known for his outrageous characters Borat, Bruno and Da Ali G. Read all about it at the New York Times web site and watch the accompanying clip.
They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. And that’s truer in the Big Apple than anywhere else. So, thanks dad. I must have gotten my sense of humor and love of comedy from somewhere.
