DescriptionA Joey Bishop Large Group of Canceled Checks, 1946-1947. Twenty-seven total, drawn from the comedian's checking accounts at either Gimbel Brothers Bank in Philadelphia or Manufacturers Trust Company in New York, all entirely handwritten in black or blue fountain pen ink, paid to the order of hotels, tailors, The William Morris Agency, and "cash" (plus a few others), signed either "Joey Bishop" or "Joseph A. Gottlieb" [his given name], numerous cancellation stamps and punch marks evident on all; also included is a huge collection of canceled checks signed by Bishop's beloved wife, Sylvia, who evidently managed the household funds -- likely because Bishop was constantly on the road performing during these early days.
