This Laugh Is on Me: The Phil Silvers Story

From the jacketflap:
"When I was eight, I sang at a stag coming-out-of-jail party for a local hoodlum named Little Doggie. In the middle of my number, a man was shot dead at my feet." What a start for Phil Silvers' roller-coaster career.

Born to immigrant parents and raised in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, Phil Silvers' life was a dazzling odyssey which led him from the heights of vaudeville stardom at age twelve, to years of obscurity performing in cheap burlesque houses, and finally to success on the Braodway stage with "Top Banana," and "A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum," and on to national stardom as TV's "Sgt. Bilko."

This Laugh Is On Me is more than an honest, sometimes painful account of the private life of one of the nation's great comedians; it is a revealing look at all the world of show biz on and off the stage.
