November 4, 1918 – November 9, 2003

Art Carney was an immensely talented actor, mimic, comedian and singer. Over his 50+ year career, Carney delighted audience in every medium.  He began his career in radio, moved to television, stage, records and film.   He won an Academy Award in 1974 for his performance in Harry and Tonto.  Of course, his entire amazing career can probably be owed to the time he first met and worked with Jackie Gleason. Carney’s fame shot through the roof due to his portrayal of Ed Norton opposite Gleason on the wildly successful TV show, The Honeymooners.  The Honeymooners wasn’t the only time Carney and Gleason worked together, but it was by far the most widely known. Art continued to work well into his 70’s.  He died in his sleep at the age of 85.
