Biography

Comedy writer/producer Earle Doud penned jokes for such television comics as Johnny Carson, Jack Paar, and Jonathan Winters and for the popular television series Father Knows Best in the 1950s and early '60s. His debut album, Sounds Funny, took a humorous look at sound effects. Doud's most successful outing was an album, The First Family, recorded on October 27, 1962, that poked fun at President John F. Kennedy's White House. Written and produced with Bob Booker and featuring Vaughn Meader as the President and Naomi Brossart as the First Lady, it was a phenomenal success, selling more than seven and a half million copies. Although a second volume, released in the spring of 1963, received an equally warm reception, it was pulled from the marketplace following Kennedy's assassination on November 22, 1963. The American presidency continued to be a source for Doud's humor, as he subsequently wrote and produced similar albums Lyndon Johnson's Lonely Hearts Club Band with Alen Robin in 1967 and The First Family Rides Again, which spoofed the Ronald Reagan era, in 1981. He also produced and wrote an album, Spiro T. Agnew Is a Riot, parodying Nixon's vice president, in 1971. ~ Craig Harris
