Never Retire, Ever
Michael & Dad. By Michael Schulder October 1, 2015 Today, my father would have turned 92. If he were alive, and healthy, he would have been working. On stage. My father, Bobby Shields, was a standup comic. When I was growing up, I often heard him and his fellow comic friends talk about how they’d never retire – no matter how much money they made. Not if there was an audience that would show up to see them perform.
