“Why Not!” That was the catchphrase used by the Borscht Belt comedian Dayton Allen. He used to appear regularly on whatever TV show Steve Allen (no relation, though Steve called him “my uncle”) as crazy characters, and go into these sometimes rambling discussions of whatever the character does.
Something I didn’t know about until this morning: he was a voice actor, voicing such characters as Heckle and Jeckle, Deputy Dog, Phineas T. Bluster and Flubadub on Howdy Doody, and Lancelot Link from the show Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp.
