The Laugh Makers

A Behind-the-Scenes Tribute to Bob Hope’s Incredible Gag Writers

By Robert L. Mills, Gary Owens & Joe Bevilacqua
Narrated by Robert L. Mills / 11 hours 19 minutes

“In The Laugh Makers, Bob Mills takes us on a delightful,side-splitting journey back to the slapstick sketch comedy of television’sgolden age—a long-ago era of variety, song-and-dance, brilliant patter, and aseemingly endless parade of laughs—sprung from the genius of ‘gag men,’ thattalented group of wit-blessed wordsmiths to whom the book pays well-deservedhomage. The Laugh Makers is apriceless collection of heretofore unpublished recollections revealing untoldsecrets and goings-on behind the scenes on The Bob Hope Show from Stockholm to BoraBora, London to Peking. It’s jam-packed with stories [and] anecdotes, his gueststars, and his writers—all from a fondly remembered past that will have youchuckling from start to finish. Bob Mills is well qualified to salute thefamous corps of gag men who kept the comedian knee-deep in jokes. Thesefirsthand recollections summon up the final phase of Hope’s career―and the endof the trail for an entire brand of show business.”—Gary Owens, Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In
