About Jimmy Durante

  • James Francis Durante ( d?-RAN-tee, Italian: [du'rante]; February 10, 1893 – January 29, 1980) was an American singer, pianist, comedian, and actor.
  • His distinctive clipped gravelly speech, Lower East Side Manhattan accent, comic language-butchery, jazz-influenced songs, and prominent nose helped make him one of America's most familiar and popular personalities of the 1920s through the 1970s.
  • He often referred to his nose as the schnozzola (Italianization of the American Yiddish slang word schnoz "big nose"), and the word became his nickname.
