Audible Editor Reviews

Here's "King of the One-Liners" Henry Youngman performing his classic bits, including "Take My Wife ... Please". Youngman's jokes are always delivered in rapid succession and often draw on classic New York Italian and Jewish stories, although he's also not shy about turning the humor on himself. The recordings here take place in front of a live audience with occasional musical interludes, and many of his jokes remain surprisingly fresh. A great choice for those who want to take a trip down comedy’s memory lane.
