#Fact
1Before the ABC-TV "Tommy Seven Show", Ed created the same pathetique clown character for the WJZ-TV in Baltimore, Maryland, where he hosted/performed the "Pop-Pop Show" in 1958-9, before ABC-TV (channel 7) brought him to New York in 1960, calling him "Tommy Seven".
2His nickname "Blade" was given to him in 1967, when he arrived in Hollywood and did guest shots on one of many western television series directed by Virgil W. Vogel, who gave him the nickname because he said Ed's profile was so strong, it could cut the screen like a knife--hence "Blade" was all he ever called him and the name stuck.
3Spouse: Anita - opera singer/director/voice teacher/actor.
4Daughters: Winita - born 9/4/1954; Lewellyn - born 5/21/1957.
5In 1960 he recorded the "Humorous Folksongs by Greensleeves" album, creating the adult comedy character "Eddie Greensleeves", a millionaire folk singer who never sang for money. This character was created at the request of Westinghouse Television in New York and Ed appeared as a repeat guest on Westinghouse Television's Mike Wallace's PM East (1961) in 1961-62, as well as two appearances as the same character on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962) in 1962, one with "Fat" Jack E. Leonard and the other with Soupy Sales, hosting.
6Was the host/performer of a local NYC-based kids TVsShow, "The Tommy Seven Show". It was seen weekday evenings and mornings and Sunday mornings on WABC TV Ch.7 in NYC from Monday September 12, 1960 to Friday, May 24, 1963, and from Sunday, April 29,1961, to Sunday, July 15, 1961.
