Comedy legend David Brenner shows how humor can give us the power to transcend tragedy

One September 11, 2001, David Brenner was in the midst of a 48-week standup comedy gig in Las Vegas. Immediately after the tragic day, he cancelled the engagement and instructed his manager to book him on a nationwide tour. He called it the "Laughter to the People" tour, and it was to bec

You know those books where you hate to turn the page because you're one step closer to finishing and you don't want the book to end?

This isn't one of those books.

I love(d) David Brenner. I have read and re-read "Soft Pretzels with Mustard" and "No One Ever Sees You Eat Tuna Fish." These books are wonderful humorous biographies.

9/2006 Not gut bustingly funny, but an enjoyable read, with some laugh out loud moments. The funniest thing about this book, though, was the copy I had from the library was defaced by having chapters ripped out. Of course, their absence caused more interest probably than their exisistance, so I had to refer to the Table of Contents to see what was missing:
(by chapter title:)
Political Correctness
Religion
Terrorists and Terrorism
War & Peace
and......
Dentists

Shelves: humor
This book isn't all that funny and it contains quite a bit of language, I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
