~ Person


Allan Sherman (born Allan Copelon; November 30, 1924 – November 20, 1973) was an American comedy writer and television producer who became famous as a song parodist in the early 1960s.

He is not to be confused with the songwriter Al Sherman who, coincidentally, also died in fall of 1973.
