Still Foolin' 'Em by Billy Crystal

Comedy is all about timing. Every comedian knows this. The same joke told with different beats will warrant two different responses. Additionally, comedic styles ebb and flow with time like all fashion trends. Rarely can a comedian stay popular and relevant throughout his or her entire career. Billy Crystal is one of those rare comedians.

Still Foolin’ ‘Em is a hilarious yet genuine autobiography by the seemingly timeless comedian. His stories will entertain from page one: growing up in New York, struggling as a young parent trying to break it big in entertainment, meeting his heroes Mickey Mantle and Muhammad Ali, becoming a grandparent, dealing with failure, and finding enormous success on Broadway.

Billy Crystal is a priceless. He is a Hollywood legend and an icon of American culture. Reading his biography you get a see a very personal side that you don’t see very often from comedians. If you are a fan of Crystal’s work you will love this book.
