Like I wrote, I had just seen Buddy Hackett do his act in Vegas only 3 or 4 days earlier,
Hackett did about an hour. The Comedy Store gave Kramer about 7 or 8 minutes.
They were ALL Hackett's. Not just one line. Even Kramer admits that the guy he was writing for may have lifted that material.
I saw Hackett's act. According to him, he didn't. So how does he know he only stole one line?
He corroborates that he was there when I said he was, and that someone else called him out about stealing from Buddy Hackett.
What he's writing here is self serving, and should at least be seen as such.
I'll probably post this entire correspondence on my blog.
