Dear Harry,
It was a United Artists LP album (4089) 'Here's Nye In Your Eye' and included:
•Hipster At The Bank
•Emotional Newscaster
•Army Sergeant
•Meeting On Madison Avenue
•The Choreographer
•Munich Music Lesson.
As you will know, as you have a dubbed copy of the LP.
The original LP album, was released in June 1961 about the time of the final "The Steve Allen Show" and when Louis Nye joined "The Ann Sothern Show" on CBS  
Nye's tenure with the Steve Allen Show also included regulars Don Knotts, Tom Poston, Bill Dana and Gabriel Dell.
Perhaps it was Allen or one the show's popular comedians who took the straight part on that Nye LP. 
Sorry, that's the best I can do from this far away.
Very kind regards,
