It’s Roman Cycowski’s Birthday!

Jan 24, 2024

Join us in celebrating the birthday of Comedian Harmonist, Roman Cycowski! 


Roman Cycowski shared in an interview in 1995 that he was technically born in April of 1900 but because of the Russian government delays on his government paperwork, his birthday is considered January 24, 1901. He was a Polish-German operatic baritone and cantor, and the last surviving member of the Comedian Harmonists, a renowned vocal sextet that achieved international stardom in the 1920s and 1930s. Cycowksi’s life was a remarkable journey spanning continents and eras, marked by both artistic triumph and personal tragedy. He died in Palm Springs on November 9, 1998.
