Trivia

Trademark: Known for his goofy physical comedy, including slapstick and playing well-meaning, doe-eyed, child-like dim-wits.

Like many dancers (especially in his day), he was a great admirer of Fred Astaire and would do his best to emulate him.

He once worked at the Cabaret Theater for a mere $11 a week.



His best friend and mentor was one Andy Griffith. He went on to appear on "The Andy Griffith Show" as a regular and eventually took over in the short-lived spin-off "Mayberry R.F.D.'

Ken Berry Quotes
"Mayberry was a wonderful place to visit and people would fantasize about living there. It's a place like Brigadoon that shows up every hundred years. It's a place you dream about living, but you know it's fantasy and you don't care. I grew up among people very much like that -- a bigger town, but not much bigger -- and the neighborhood was very much like that and the people were very much like those characters. And it was fun for me to visit, too. It was one of my favorite half hours ever on television and that was long before I met Andy Griffith."

"Fred Astaire was my big hero. As Gene Kelly articulated it, 'He's a phenomenon.' No human body has ever been able to move like that. I don't think people now really appreciate that fact -- that there has never been a human being who moved like that. I've never seen anything like it in my life and I don't think any of us ever will. I know just enough about dance to know how impossible it is to do what he did. It's a really 'sweat' job, the hard work. When it comes to dance, nobody has ever touched him before or since."
