Maybe he'll even get some respect. Most kids never live up to their baby picture Roy and Arthur was a vaudeville comedy team. Roy was my father; Arthur was my uncle Bunk.

On November 22, , after their last show that night in Philadelphia, Phil Roy got a call backstage, where he was told, "It's a boy!

My father's real name was Philip Cohen; his stage name was Phil Roy. I was born in an eighteen-room house owned by in mother's sister Rose and her husband. After a couple of weeks my mother took me back to her place in Jamaica, Queens where we lived with my four-year-old sister, Marion, my mother's mother, my mother's other three sisters -- Esther, Peggy, and Pearlie -- her brother Joe, and a Swedish carpenter named Mack, who Esther later married. The whole family had come to America from Hungary when my mother was four.

My mother's father -- my grandfather -- was almost never referred to in that house. Rumor has it he's still in Hungary -- and still drinking. My dad wasn't around much, either. I found out much later that he was a ladies' man. Dad had no time for his kids -- he was always out trying to make new kids.

My father and I did none of those things. He didn't live with us. Show business kept him on the road practically all the time -- or was it my mother? When my father wasn't on the road, he'd stay in New York City. We'd walk around for an hour and talk -- not that we ever had much to say to each other -- then he'd walk me back to the subway and give me some change.

I'd say, "Thank you," and then take the subway back home. Although I didn't realize it at the time, my childhood was rather odd. I was raised by my mother, who ran a very cold household. I never got a kiss, a hug, or a compliment. My mother wouldn't even tuck me in, and forget about kissing me good night.

On my birthdays, I never got a present, a card, nothing. I guess that's why I went into show business -- to get some love. I wanted people to tell me I was good, tell me I'm okay. Let me hear the laughs, the applause.
