Roly-poly, handlebar-mustached comic actor Avery Schreiber attended Goodman Theatre before joining Chicago's Second City improv troupe. It was here that Schreiber formed a long-term partnership with comedian/producer/director Jack Burns. The team gained fame on the variety-show circuit of the 1960s with their largely improvised routines, the most affectionately remembered of which was their cross-talk "cab driver" bit ("Yeh!" "Huh?" "Yeh!", "Huh?" "Yeh!", "Huh?") In 1965, Schreiber was cast as car-loving, people-hating Captain Manzini on that quintessential bad sitcom My Mother The Car; in real life, the actor loved people but hated cars, and had to be taught to drive for the series. Schreiber subsequently co-starred with his old partner Jack Burns on the 1967 summer variety series Our Place, then soloed as a regular on Sammy Davis Jr's syndicated Sammy & Company (1975) and as Grandpa Quirk on the daytime cartoon--live action hybrid Wake, Rattle and Roll (1990). In films, Schreiber has surfaced in "funny foreigner" parts in such comedies as Don't Drink the Water (1969), The Last Remake of Beau Geste (1977; as the used camel salesman) and Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1994). Having made his Broadway debut with the rest of the Second City-zens, Schreiber has since been featured in several New York stage productions, notably Metamorphoses and Can-Can. In recent years, Avery Schreiber, his bushy 8-inch moustache intact, has hosted more than his share of late-night TV infomercials.
