A giant adult brat in New Orleans is so monstrously self-absorbed, opinionated and cocksure of himself as to create hilarious mayhem wherever he goes. In this carefully abridged version of a Pulitzer Prize-winning tale, Arte Johnson goes way over the top, leaving no stone of comic phrasing and vocal mugging unturned. If you remember his silly face from "Laugh-In," you can imagine how much fun he must have been in-studio. His lack of discipline mutes the jollity a hair for listeners, but he still provides plenty of laughs. Y.R. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 99]
