My Life Helping Funny People Be Funnier : A Cultural MemoirBook - 2020
Alan Zweibel started his comedy career selling jokes for seven dollars apiece to the last of the Borscht Belt standups. One night he caught the attention of Lorne Michaels and became one of the first writers at Saturday Night Live, where he penned classic material for the original Not Ready For Prime Time Players. He went on to have a hand in a series of landmark shows. Here Zweibel weaves together his own stories and interviews with his friends and contemporaries to create a warmhearted cultural memoir of American comedy.
