This live recording of Mooney's one-man show presents sketches drawn from the roots of American humor. Opening with accounts of the Mississippi River, which hosts a parade of Americana, Mooney sets the scene for what follows. His exceptional skills as a storyteller are evident in his ability to slide effortlessly from the sophistication of Washington, D.C., to the professional activities of an early sanitary engineer, as he creates lively and believable characters. Mooney is as comfortable with a Downeast twang and language rhythms as he is with a colorful pitchman's spiel. Adults and young adults who enjoy humor with a historical perspective will appreciate this audiobook. R.M. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 98]
