he'd tell the true story of,

he'd be out doing his comedy routine at some night club and get home well after 2 AM (or so).

Actually met Danny Thomas when I was a kid. I was one of the few kids from our county selected to attend a Boy Scout jamboree. He was a keynote speaker at it and me and others were selected for part of his escort. He was a real nice guy as I remember.
