Sure, start off with Wikipedia and go from there. There's nothing wrong with using the internet to make up clues; you're just not allowed to use it to answer.

I'll take a guess. He mentioned , during a radio interview, he owned a horse that ran.)

Dr. Quincy (Mr. Jack Klugman)?

If correct?, someone can take over for me. Thanks!

You are correct! Jack Klugman AKA Dr. Quincy AKA Oscar Madison!

Who ever wants to jump in...please do.

1. I was born on September 5, 1929 at West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park, Illinois.

2. I was educated at Roman Catholic schools in the Chicago area, including St. Catherine of Siena Grammar School in Oak Park, and attended St. Ignatius College Prep (high school), graduating in 1947. I then enrolled at Loyola University of Chicago from which I graduated in 1952 with a bachelor's degree in business management.

3. I was drafted into the United States Army and served in the United States during the Korean War as a personnel manager until being discharged in 1954. I briefly attended Loyola University Chicago School of Law, but did not complete a degree, in part, I was asked to behave unethically during an internship.

4. After the war, I worked for United States Gypsum as an accountant. I later said that my motto, "That's close enough", and my habit of adjusting petty cash imbalances with my own money showed I did not have the temperament to be an accountant.

5. I also said I was a clerk in the unemployment office who made $55 a week, but quit upon learning unemployment benefits were $45 a week and I "only had to come in to the office one day a week to collect it."

6. In 1958, I became an advertising copywriter for Fred A. Niles, a major independent film and television producer in Chicago. There, myself and a co-worker entertained each other with long telephone calls about absurd scenarios, which we later recorded and sent to radio stations as audition tapes. When the co-worker ended his participation by taking a job in New York, I continued the recordings alone, developing this type of routine.

I played various improv clubs in LA.

In 1984, I became the first $100,000 grand champion winner in the comedy category of the TV show Star Search.

This led to my first appearance, at age 23, on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, making me one of the youngest comedians ever to perform on the show.

I was appearing as an opening act for such headliners as Diana Ross and Liza Minnelli. I also opened in Las Vegas for Frank Sinatra, David Copperfield, Smokey Robinson, Sammy Davis, Jr., the Beach Boys, The Righteous Brothers and Julio Iglesias.

After achieving a strong measure of success with stand-up comedy, I decided to change gears and try my luck with performing on TV. From 1985–1986, I was the voice of Hulk Hogan (in a voice similar to Rodney Dangerfield) for the cartoon series Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n Wrestling.

My distinctive deep voice has landed me prolific work as a voice actor, such as on Mighty Ducks: The Animated Series, 2 Stupid Dogs, The Spooktacular New Adventures of Casper, Project Geeker, Biker Mice from Mars, Steven Spielberg Presents: Toonsylvania, A Bug's Life, Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, Asterix and the Vikings, Superman: The Animated Series, and Justice League as Lobo.

By 1924, I was working in a speakeasy operated by Al Capone.

I was a cellist, a skill I used throughout my career.

After being caught in the middle of a gunfight, I moved to California and worked writing jokes.

I was credited as the lyricist on the popular 1945 Andrews Sisters hit "Rum and Coca-Cola".

Because of my enormous repertoire, and my ability to come up with a joke on any subject,
earned me the nickname "The Human Joke Machine".

In 1958 I appeared as a saloon manager in the western series Have Gun, Will Travel.
