J. EDGAR

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Goodman, Kelsey Grammer, Harry Shearer and a Full Cast

Poetry & Drama • 1.75 hrs. • Audio Program • © 1994

In this irreverent and warmly silly ode to America’s number one G-man, longtime comic collaborators Harry Shearer (THIS IS SPINAL TAP, THE SIMPSONS) and Tom Leopold (SEINFELD, CHEERS) gathered up a veritable who’s who of American comic voice talent—from Dan Castellaneta to Christopher Guest and Annette O’Toole. Together they deliver a rousing send-up of the modern American musical. Sounding as Tin Pan Alley as humanly possible, Kelsey Grammer, as the FBI’s foundering director, J. Edgar Hoover, and John Goodman, as Hoover’s protégé, Clyde Tolson, happily sing their hearts and lungs out on their way to taking modern American history to new hilarious heights. Biting satire never sounded so in tune. B.P. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2014]
