For the Love of Velvel....He's on Facebook!

A decade ago, at the old job, I was knee-deep in Velvel fever. Rickie Layne and Velvel were relics from another era of entertainment, and I had a lot of fun covering what turned out to be the end of the comedy duo's career (Layne passed away in 2006 and Velvel died a few years later).

Now it's 2011, and Velvel has his own Facebook page. The crazy has come full circle...kind of like a bialy!

Here's Layne and Velvel backstage at one of their many appearances on "The Ed Sullivan Show."

Oh no!! I had no idea Velvel passed away a few years after his partner.

So sad.... :(

My condolences to the puppet-maker who made the late, great Velvel.
