If you're someone who likes comedy, American history or the history of old show business, The Comedians: Drunks, Thieves, Scoundrels and the History of American Comedy, by Kliph Nesteroff, is the book for you. Hell, it's a book for anybody. It's THAT GREAT! Not only did I have the pleasure of reading the book, I had the pleasure of interviewing Kliph! This interview provides some great tidbits about Dick Gregory, Larry David, Mel Brooks and many other greats (and not so greats). Also, you can check out Kliph's amazing blog, which has been championed by Marc Maron, at http://classicshowbiz.blogspot.com/
