Publisher's Summary

Six of the funniest hour-long episodes by comedy master Fred Allen, from his live radio show.
This wonderful blast from the past presents each episode exactly as it aired on the radio - including the commercials!
Fred Allen was an American comedian whose absurdist, pointed radio show, made him one of the most popular and forward-looking humorists in the so-called classic era of American radio. Allen is considered one of the more accomplished, daring and relevant humorists of his time. A master ad libber, he constantly battled censorship and developed routines whose substance and style influenced future comic talents, notably Stan Freberg and Johnny Carson.
Perhaps more than any of his generation, Fred Allen wielded influence that outlived both his contemporaries and the medium that made him famous.
