 SHECKYmagazine: Mixed Nuts by Lawrence Epstein Standup Comedy...Seriously!
Burns made his way to Chicago where, at Second City, he met Avery Schreiber, who, after a stint in the army and work at a theater, had joined the troupe, as he recalled, sometime in 1960 or 1961.
Burns and Schreiber even looked gloriously at odds: Burns was thin and clean-shaven, and Schreiber had heft, loads of curly hair, and an impressive mustache.
Because Burns was generally politically and socially conservative and Schreiber more of a liberal, their personal differences, filtered through an ethnic lens, provided almost dueling stand-ups, unlike Stiller and Meara who had created more accomodating characters.
