Looking back at the contents of previous books, you can add "even more" to them as well. Wrinkles, warts and liver spots? Even more! Funny folks you fondly remember? Even more! The previous volume, More Old Jewish Comedians, had 32 pages. This book? Even more! (40 pages to be exact.)
I'm tempted to use the cliché "If you liked the other books you'll love this one." A better recommendation would be, "If you loved the previous books you'll love the third one even more!"
Yeah, I know there are some of nit-pickers out there. I'm sure there's a wise guy who will look at the full-page painting of Sam Levenson and say "You drew Sam with 117 liver spots, but he actually had 119." But I'm going with Drew on this. If Drew says there are 117, there are 117. Case closed.
I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the fine and funny intro by not-yet-old Jewish comedian Jeffrey Ross, which is the only thing in the book that wasn't in the previous two.
I urge you to buy two copies of this book. One to leave on your coffee table, and one to cut apart so you can frame your favorites. I think Marty Ingels would look great on the mantelpiece.
Included in this last OLD JEWISH COMEDIANS compilation are Richard Belzer, David Brenner, Norm Crosby, Stan Freberg, Marty Ingels, Sophie Tucker, Mel Blanc, Lou Jacobi, Marvin Kaplan, Steve Landesberg, Walter Matthau, Buddy Lester, Victor Borge, Weber & Fields, Abe Vigoda, etc.
Though Friedman doesn't spare the age lines, liver spots and what-not, his artworks are always affectionate. The result is an entertaining tribute to some very special entertainers "in the sunset of their years." Recommended.
