From the Catskills to Broadway to Paris, Jerry Lewis has wowed the United States and Europe with his gangly comedic brilliance. In King of Comedy, Shawn Levy gives us Lewis's life behind the scenes. The story is fascinating, using witty prose and germane interviews to chronicle Lewis's rise to stardom, his partnership with Dean Martin, as well as his relationships with family, friends and foes. Marty Ingels's engaging narrative style (not to mention his signature New York accent) blends expertly with Levy's text. He even sounds like Lewis on occasion! Whether or not you're a fan, this audiobook is an excellent biography of one of this country's most influential comedians. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR/APR 98]
