About Budd Abbott (1895 – 1974)

Bud Abbott was Born on October 2, 1895, in Asbury Park, New Jersey. He passed away on April 24, 1974, in Woodland Hills, California, from cancer.

Bud Abbott and Lou Costello are the only two non-sportsmen honored in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY, for their "Who's On First" routine.

Abbott and Costello are known in Italy as "Gianni and Pinotto"; Abbott being "Gianni" and Costello being "Pinotto".

Bud Abbott worked in carnivals while still a child, and dropped out of school, in 1909. In 1931, while cashiering at the Brooklyn Theater, Bud substituted for comic Lou Costello's ill straight man. Before long, Abbot & Costello formed their famous comedy team. Through the 1930s, they worked burlesque, minstrel shows, vaudeville and movie houses.

In 1938, Abbott and Costello got national exposure through the Kate Smith Hour radio show, and signed with Universal the next year for their film debut, in One Night in the Tropics;(1940).
