I have a Berman LP and one of his lines I still remember...when two people are holding hands, how can one know whose hand is doing the sweating!  He also did a telephone bit like Bob Newhart (wonder you get what from whom?).

"Coffee, tea, or milk?" says the airline stewardess (Berman's impression).

Lately he played Larry David's father on "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

He had an album in 1964 titled "The Sex Life of the Primate" which featured Jerry Stiller, Anne Meara, and Lovelady Powell. It included some very funny bits, of which my favorite was a high school biology class dealing with "Reproduction, or How We Come To Be".

Miss Dudley (Meara): "Let's begin with the fishes in the sea. ... The female fish swims to a spawning place, where she spawns."
Diane (Powell): "Is spawning like going to sleep?"
Miss Dudley: "No, Diane, the fish is wide awake at all times. ... So after the female fish swims to the spawning place, she deposits her roe."
Kevin (Berman): "What's roe?"
Miss Dudley: "Roe is fish eggs. Let's say it together."
Class: "Roe ... roe ... roe your boat ..."
Miss Dudley: "Alright, class ... Then the male fish swims over the roe and fertilizes the roe. Then he swims away."
Howard (Stiller): "The male fish, does he fertilize only his wife's roes?"
Miss Dudley: "No, fish travel in groups called schools, so the male fish will only fertilize the roe of a female who is in the same school."
Kevin: "Yeah, that's what happened to Harriet." ...
Howard: "How was I born?"
Miss Dudley: "That's a very good question, Howard ..."
Howard: "My father can't swim!"

Loses a bit in translation.
