    This is the 5th copy of this book which I've purchased. It's a great joke book. I've given copies as gifts to friends, and they all loved it. The jokes are not your run-of-the-mill stories, they're nuggets of laughter, told in an entertaining style by a professional entertainer, along with tips on how to tell them. But, the book is also a snap shot of legendary yet publicly little known magicians and entertainers of the latter half of the 20th century. Through the jokes, these guys come alive; truly original larger-than-life personas with a gazillion hours of performing under their belts... through extraordinary anecdotes about these guys, from these guys. Some saw Vaudeville at its peak. Some were on the Ed Sullivan Show numerous times; some did Royal Command Performances. Yet the very best lines and jokes often originated from working the trenches of corporate entertainment. Mr Close, who is no slouch himself as an entertainer/magician/story-teller, draws a vivid portrait of his... More > friends through a very personal perspective. If you obtain this book and are knowledgeable about magic in the latter half of the 20th century, you'll love this book. If you are not, I see a small detour on Youtube in your immediate future... And much amazement. And remember, there are (literally) killer jokes in there, as well...< Less
