RUSSELL BAKER'S BOOK OF AMERICAN HUMOR

by | Read by Tony Randall

Humor • 4 hrs. • Anthology • © 00

Zesty and full of mirth Tony Randall makes a genial host for thirty excerpts selected from Russell Baker's Book of American Humor. In an archly ebullient narration perfectly matched to these satiric gems, this well-known actor's familiar voice has a pleasing resonance. Listeners accustomed to his TV persona will find some surprises especially his rendition of Pap, Huck Finn's father. Contemporary tales from Buchwald and Ephron, classic humor by Benchley and Twain and the enduring wit of Abraham Lincoln and Ben Franklin make up this Who's Who of American humor writers. There is much to tickle anyone's fancy and funny bone; the recording ends with outtakes of Randall dissolving into giggles and guffaws . . . listeners will too!
