5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book on the craft of getting a laugh, January 3, 2011
By 
This review is from: Notes on a Cowardly Lion (Mass Market Paperback)
If you are an actor who has ever wondered why you got a laugh one performance and not on another or if you have directed actors in a scene that should be funny but for some reason it doesn't seem to work, then this is a great book to read. Bert Lahr took his job as a clown very seriously and 'worked' extremely hard at getting each laugh. I dont' think John Lahar is deliberatly writing a book about the craft of getting a laugh, but it sure opened my eyes. No longer do I move or direct actors to move on a "laugh line". I got this book for next to nothing at a garage sale and found it was like finding a Picaso under the black velvet Elvis....I got as much out of this book as I did in reading an Actor Prepares.
