Tiny Tim

Biography

Like one of Shakespeare's jesters who plays the fool but is actually wise, Tiny Tim achieved fame and fortune by playing the clown. Getting his start as a street performer in New York City, Herbert Khaury developed a variety of personae before settling on the herky-jerky, ukulele-plucking, perennially innocent soprano for which he is famous. Tiny Tim's signature song, "Tiptoe Through the Tulips," also became his swan song -- he suffered a fatal heart attack while performing the number in 1996.
