The all-new Cigar Advisor Magazine is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers, and much more. Cigar Advisor Magazine has published an article in this month's feature section, entitled, "Comedians and Their Love Affair with Cigars Through the Years". Written by Joe Baker, readers will get a peek into the lives of comedians such as Groucho Marx, George Burns, Bill Cosby and more.
"Groucho is quite possibly the most famous and loved of all the comedians who smoked cigars," writes Mr. Baker. "One of Groucho's famous quotes, 'A woman is an occasional pleasure, but a cigar is always a smoke,' is an underlying tell at just how much he truly loved cigars. For Groucho, who started in Vaudeville, it wasn’t just shtick. In fact, Groucho's first wife hated his cigar habit so much she demanded he quit smoking or find a new wife."
In the 1950's, during the early days of television, comic genius Ernie Kovacs, who was rarely seen without a cigar, promoted Dutch Masters cigars, but only because they were his biggest sponsor. "But in real life," says Mr. Baker, "Kovacs, like most of his peers, preferred Cubans."
As for comedians working today, you won't find many smoking cigars onstage, even if they're avid cigar lovers, since most theaters ban smoking, even for performers. The one exception is Ron "Tater Salad" White, who Baker writes, "could be the last of the great cigar smoking comedians."
