Jerry in the 1960's
Hear Jerry's Welcome

By Mike Boedicker, Audiovisual Director, Danville Public Library

Jerry Van Dyke is a true journeyman entertainer, having performed in just about every venue in his long career -- movies, television, nightclubs -- but nearly always as a comedian.  

While mainstream success came fairly late in his career, on the 90's TV series Coach, Jerry had a following well before that thanks to his stand-up comedy work and many television appearances.  This site explores Jerry's varied career, as well as his relationship to older brother Dick and to his Midwest hometown.
