Bob Dishy - Rotten Tomatoes

Bob Dishy



American actor Bob Dishy was trained in the demanding art of improvisational comedy. So certain of Dishy's skills were the producers of the 1968 TV adaptation of Arsenic and Old Lace that they allowed the actor--essaying the role of a cop with playwrighting aspirations--to "wing" most of his dialogue. Among Dishy's film credits are The Tiger Makes Out (1967), Lovers and Other Strangers (1970), First Family (1980), Brighton Beach Memoirs (1986) and Critical Condition (1987). Bob Dishy also appeared as part of a comic repertory company (which included such notables as Peter Bonerz, Paul Sand, Hamilton Camp and Melinda Dillon) on the largely ad-libbed 1971 syndicated TV series Story Theatre.
