They used the name "Irving" A LOT on Here's Lucy


Recommended Posts

Why did they like that name so much?

 

The owner of the pizza parlor in "Generation Gap" was named "Irving"

The baby chimp in "Helpful Mother" was named "Irving"

They mentioned the name "Irving" a few times in Season 4 (I can't remember which episodes!) I think there was another Asian guy named Irving and it could've been the same guy from the pizza parlor.

Irving was a huge joke name in 1950s, '60, '70s entertainment for some reason. I assume the Borscht Belt writers found it funny. It's not just on Lucy.
