Publisher's Summary

As heard on Sirius XM Radio and NPR stations!
"Over 11 hours of entertainment!" says Laugh-In's Gary Owens. "In The Laugh Makers, Bob Mills takes us on a delightful, side-splitting journey back to the slapstick sketch comedy of television's Golden Age - a long-ago era of variety, song-and-dance, brilliant patter, and a seemingly endless parade of laughs - sprung from the genius of 'gag men,' that talented group of wit-blessed word-smiths to whom the book pays well-deserved homage."
The Laugh Makers is a priceless collection of heretofore unpublished recollections revealing untold secrets and goings-on behind the scenes on the Bob Hope Show, from Stockholm to Bora Bora, London to Peking. It's jam-packed with stories and anecdotes - all from a fondly remembered past that will have you chuckling from start to finish. Bob Mills is well qualified to salute the famous corps of gag men who kept the comedian knee-deep in jokes.These first-hand recollections summon up the final phase of Hope’s career - and the end of the trail for an entire brand of show business.
The Laugh Makers was listed in Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy - Year End Book Survey 2009.
The Laugh Makers: A Behind-the-Scenes Tribute to Bob Hope's Incredible Gag Writers was written and read by Robert L. Mills, with a preface read by Gary Owens. It was produced by Joe Bevilacqua, with music by Barry Dugan.
