    I know Ken from his many years of his guest starring turns on Carol Burnett and Mama’s Family which my father Harvey Korman appeared on.Ken is a perfect example of an Artists getting type cast.Most people don’t know that Ken Started off as a dancer with the Billy Barnes revue along with Michelle Lee and Bert Convy.The fact is Ken Berry is one of the greatest song and dance men around and if he had been given the chance to prove that he would be mentioned with Astaire and Kelly Today.The only thing that superceeds his talents is his humility,grace,and integrity.Its been a privaledge and honor to say I got to know the icon Ken Berry.

    I was always impressed with Ken Berry from time I was very little. Always had a mad crush on him. He just conducted himself with such grace at all times, madly talented as well.

    I grew up watching his performances on various shows. F Troop is being shown on Me TV here in Miami, and I couldn’t be happier! Happy Birthday, Mr. Berry! Thanks for the memories!

    Ken Berry is a great multi-talented person, who brings much joy and smiles in my life. I try, never to miss any of the re-runs of his show. Ditto- Forrest Tucker

  6. Brooks says:

    Ken Berry was fantastic on every show I saw him on. F Troop was so far ahead of its time. It was a great show. I loved how the indians would call him The Great White Pigeon. Always love when I see that show on reruns.

There are even some pictures of you as a kid during Halloween. Take care, If you would like to contact me I’m sure Mom would get a kick out of it.
