Synopsis

In The Laugh Makers, the author takes us on a side-splitting journey to a long ago era of slapstick sketch comedy that lovingly explores the fascinating world of variety TV's "gag men," those wit-blessed wordsmiths to whom the book pays long-overdue homage.

Here is a priceless collection of backstage stories, behind-the-scenes anecdotes, and revealingly candid photos that fondly recall a golden age of television that is now but a memory. In this book, you'll meet the talented stars and the gifted writers who helped make their audiences laugh -- and, most important, you'll laugh all over again.

Eighty-three photos included in the print version (plus many that were not due to space limitations) are viewable enlarged -- many in color taken by the author -- at this site:
