Personal Quote:

I love people. I keep telling performers, 'Not only do you owe them a good performance, you also owe them love. If you love them, they love you 10 times more. It is not the producers that pay your wages; they do. If they don't like you, you're not going to get work. But if they love you, they'll put you in comfort.' See more »

Trivia:

Born Philip Finkel, but adopted the Yiddish translation for Philip (Fyvush) for his career. See more »
