“Johnson is a clear, intelligent, forceful writer, and nothing if not thorough.” —Wall Street Journal

    Johnson provides keen insight into many historical comedic figures who I was aware of but knew very little about. With all the tragedy and disheartening news today, it was refreshing to read about people who decided to pursue the lighter side of life and share it with others. Short but very informative and enjoyable, as are many of Johnson's bios...EAF
