Every holiday season new generations are introduced to stage, screen and comedic icon Danny Kaye through the White Christmas marathon that plays on AMC. Danny Kaye was a performer in a day in age when entertainers were expected to do it all. Not only was Kaye a true artist, he was a great humanitarian and chef. Danny Kay was born on January 18, 1913 in Brooklyn, and to celebrate the centennial of this legendary impresario, famed eatery Carnegie Deli added the Danny Kaye Sandwich to its menu.
On April 29, Dena Kaye, Kaye’s daughter, and widow Sylvia Fine Kaye joined the staff of the Carnegie Deli as for a sandwich cutting ceremony, officially inducting the Danny Kaye Deli Club sandwich onto the menu. The sandwich is part of activities celebrating Danny Kaye’s centennial and shares good company with another famous New Yorker, Woody Allen.
