: Comedian Richard Lewis has claimed to have come up with the phrase "the _____ from hell" (e.g. the mother-in-law from hell). Are there any recorded uses of the phrase predating him?
When does Mr. Lewis say he came up with the phrase? Maybe he did create this comic phrase or whatever it's called. But "from hell" has some age on it regards the movies.
