This review is from: The Philip Rapp Joke File (Paperback)
BearManor Media presents "THE PHILIP RAPP JOKE FILE" (Paperback), by Philip Rapp (Author) with a foreword by Gary Owens, edited by Ben Ohmart.

Guaranteed to pull out every chuckle that lurks within your sobering body. As the foreword implies - this book will give you a nifty cross-section of Rapp's voluminous joke file. (Gary Owens)

Editor Ohmart is somewhat an authority on the brilliant writings of Philip Rapp, mostly THE BICKERSONS, which also is a love of mine.

Enjoy the paragraphs within the Editor's Note: "Few writers are given the opportunity I was: total access to a comedy writer's infinite output. More than 20 boxes of material, scripts, notes ideas, more scripts, including Phil's complete joke file, which he used to spice up the likes of scripts for Eddie Cantor, Danny Kaye, Fanny Brice, Frank Morgan, and of course, Don Ameche and Frances Langfford. As soon as I saw the joke file, I knew it would make a great book. I'm sure you'll agree".

Very reasonable and a good value for the price --- For product description and editorial review check this out on the Amazon site above my review.

* Special footnote: -- Warning!! - Some of the jokes or gags are dated, which readers today may find offensive. It was a different world 70 years ago.

Big thank you to Ben Ohmart and his staff at BearManor Media, a small press that publishes BIG books. They pride themselves on publishing quality entertainment biographies, so they often put out the first book on unique subjects -- plus specializing in books with nostalgic themes and keeping classic Hollywood alive not only thru his publishing house, but thru his own books.

If you want a laugh minute, this book (or Joke File) is right up your alley.

Highly recommend - a good read! Perfect coffee-table book.
