Between the Laughs:
Our greatest comedians talk seriously about
comedy and each other
Between the Laughs
takes us inside the minds of our greatest comedians, dating back almost 100
years-but not to find jokes or gags. Through their words, as they discuss their
profession, we learn how they feel about comedy, and about each other. The
greats of Vaudeville, silent and sound films, radio, TV, and stand-up have all
had much to say through the decades about the art of making people laugh. As
they attest, their job is not all fun and games.
Here is an entertaining, educational, and thought-provoking collection of
over 500 quotes, observations and opinions by legendary comedians
and current favorites who, when the spotlight is off, take their comedy
seriously, and who have been willing to share their knowledge, jealousies,
failures, and triumphs when speaking between the laughs.

"This small yet funny and interesting book is loaded with
quotes...It is interesting to read what these old time comics, most of who have
passed on now, thought about each other. If you enjoy learning about he old time
comedic masters, as this reviewer does, then you will thoroughly enjoy this
book." -- Portland Book Review
