Nat Hiken 2009 fine art print / edition of 25 / $165.00
Nat Hiken (1914-1968) might not be a household name, but his 1950-60s TV sitcom creations are: The Phil Silvers Show (a.k.a. Sgt. Bilko) and Car 54, Where Are You? So are the stars he wrote for: Lucille Ball, Milton Berle, Mel Brooks, Carol Burnett, Woody Allen, Bette Davis, Don Knotts, Al Lewis, Sid Caesar, Martha Raye, and Zero Mostel.

During his incomparable career, Hiken was a polymath who created, produced, directed, wrote, and composed music (including Car 54's unforgettable theme song). He won eight Emmy Awards, and is credited with discovering and advancing the TV careers of Fred Gwynne, Alan Alda, and Dick Van Dyke. Starting as a writer in radio for Fred Allen in 1940, Hiken became one of TV's first writer-producers a decade later. The Silvers Show, which debuted in 1955, was described by one critic as a "polished example of expert farce." But Hiken's workaholic ways proved a blessing and a curse.
