Kliph Nesteroff and "The Comedians: Drunks, Thieves, Scoundrels and the History of American Comedy"

2015-11-08 :: timrpowers@gmail.com
Length: 1s

InThe Comedians, comedy historian Kliph Nesteroff brings to life a century of American comedy with real-life characters, forgotten stars, mainstream heroes and counterculture iconoclasts. Based on over two hundred original interviews and extensive archival research, Nesteroff’s groundbreaking work is a narrative exploration of the way comedians have reflected, shaped, and changed American culture over the past one hundred years.Starting with the vaudeville circuit at the turn of the last century, Nesteroff introduces the first stand-up comedian—an emcee who abandoned physical shtick for straight jokes. After the repeal of Prohibition, Mafia-run supper clubs replaced speakeasies, and mobsters replaced vaudeville impresarios as the comedian’s primary employer. In the 1950s, the late-night talk show brought stand-up to a wide public, while Lenny Bruce, Mort Sahl, and Jonathan Winters attacked conformity and staged a comedy rebellion in coffeehouses. From comedy’s part in the Civil Rights movement and the social upheaval of the late 1960s, to the first comedy clubs of the 1970s and the cocaine-fueled comedy boom of the 1980s,The Comediansculminates with a new era of media-driven celebrity in the twenty-first century.…

Kurtzman's groundwork as the original editor, artist, and sole writer ofMADprovided the foundation for one of the greatest publishing successes of the 20th century.

Crumb, Jack Davis, Gilbert Shelton, and many others, and an examination of Kurtzman's personal archives, this book tells the true story of one of the 20th century's greatest humorists. His family life, an FBI investigation during the McCarthy Era, his legal battles with William M. Gaines (publisher ofMAD), all are revealed for the first time. Rich with anecdotes, from Kurtzman's Brooklyn beginnings to his post-MADyears, when his ceaseless creativity produced more innovations: new magazines, a graphic novel, and "Little Annie Fanny" inPlayboy.Get yours at your local Brick & Mortar Local Comic Shop today.  Tell 'em you heard about it here on Deep Dish Radio…
