Following the events of 9/11, comedian David Brenner launched his "Laughter to the People" tour in an effort to demonstrate that laughter in the face of tragedy can lighten the soul. His performances were based in part on this stand-up routine. Brenner offers a very funny look at the world, grounded in a heavy dose of his common-sense personal philosophy. His observations cover everything from his youth to aging, war and terrorism, politics, air travel, struggles with weight, money, and religion. He reads his own words with great feeling, sharp sarcasm, and the exceptional timing of an entertainer with his experience. The final package results in an irreverent look at the world around us, with plausible suggestions for staying sane during crazy times. H.L.S.
