Comment: I saw Bob Hope on tour overseas, with the USO. During his
comic delivery, I noticed a peculiar behavior from Mr. Hope, in that he
used the golf club that he always carried
this way: as the laughter and applause came in following
each joke, he would either tap the stage with an up-and-down movement
(keep the joke) or he would use a single
leisurely swing, right to left (throw the joke out). Is this an accurate
observation?

Possibly, I know Ronnie Corbett used the "Laugh when I touch my glasses" methodology in his monologues..
