Carroll Carroll

Carroll S. Weinschenk (April 11, 1902–February 5, 1991), known professionally as Carroll Carroll, was an American advertising executive, humorist and, most famously, a writer for comedians.

The highlights of Carroll's writing career was during the 1930s and 1940s. During that time period, he served as head writer for some of the biggest names in entertainment and the most popular radio shows of the time including Bing Crosby (Kraft Music Hall), Burns and Allen (The Burns and Allen Show), Eddie Cantor, Edgar Bergen (both hosts of The Chase and Sanborn Hour), Rudy Vallee (The Fleischmann's Yeast Hour), Guy Lombardo and Milton Berle (Texaco Star Theater).

Carroll is credited as the writer who helped, in part, shaped Bing Crosby's jovial easygoing radio persona.
