"There is more to Foreign Man than just a heavily accented speech pattern that sounds funny to native American ears, such as Bill Dana's Jose Jimenez. Foreign Man is also a creature suffering from culture shock, future shock. His attitudes are hopelessly out of synchronization with those common in the time and place in which he has landed. He simply does not understand the American sense of humor, but he thinks he does. He is so confident in this regard, that he's willing to get up in front of nightclub audiences and try to do what Henny Youngman, Milton Berle, or Bob Hope does."
