From my hometown, Monty was one of the most iconic figures on TV for decades. His show was amazing and he never let his fame and fortune get the best of him. He donated and raised hundreds of millions for charities over his long life.
Denied admission to medical school in 1942 because he was a Jew, he turned to the entertainment field and never looked back. His awards include the Order of Canada, Order of Manitoba and Variety Clubs International's Humanitarian Award (look it up!). His wife of 70 years passed away four months ago on June 5.
And don't forget the Monty Hall Problem (below), which I totally got WRONG when it appeared on IAB years ago... I know better now though!!
