Lou Costello

(Louis Francis Cristillo)
comedian, actor

A comedian known especially for his long-running partnership with Bud Abbott in such comedy films as Buck Privates (1941) and The Naughty Nineties (1945), which features their famous “Who's on First” routine. The chubby and simple-minded half of the pair, he got into trouble easily, egged on by his straight-man partner Abbott.
