Alan had a chance early in life to reside in many places around the United States, because his father Robert was was an actor and singer working in burlesque theater, and from whom Alan obviously inherited a talent for acting. Alan`s mom Joan was a winner of several beauty competitions. Alan also spent a great amount of time in Europe when he was a child, and it was in Amsterdam where Alan got a chance to appear on television with his father.

Alan Alda was educated at Archbishop Stepinac High School, and then graduated from Fordham University in 1956 with a degree in English. In his study years, Alan also took on minor jobs, one such was hosting a university radio show. For some time Alan studied in Paris, too, before starting seriously pursuing a career in acting in the late 1950s.

Alan Alda’s early career was spent as a member of The Compass Players comedy revue, which included performances on Broadway. For one of these roles, in “The Apple Tree”, Alda received a nomination for a Tony Award as Best Actor.  Subsequently, during the 11 years of M*A*S*H Alan not only acted in but also wrote and directed several episodes, including the finale in 1983 which remains the most-watched single episode of any TV series.
