From the Publisher:

Jonathan Winters was born in Dayton, Ohio, in 1925. After serving with the marines in the South Pacific for two and a half years, he studied at Kenyon College and the Dayton Art Institute. Soon thereafter he won a local talent contest, which led to a job as a radio disc jockey. By the mid-fifties, he had moved from the airwaves to the stage, becoming a staple at nightclubs throughout America. Regular television appearances followed, notably on the Garry Moore and Steve Allen shows, and especially on Jack Paar's programs for NBC. His own TV series, The Jonathan Winters Show, first aired in 1956. As an actor, Winters has starred in such acclaimed films as It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, The Russians Are Coming, the Russians Are Coming, Oh Dad, Poor Dad and Tony Richardson's classic The Loved One, as well as the popular television series Mork and Mindy. Today, he continues to make frequent television and motion picture appearances, performs solo concerts, shows his paintings and drawings in galleries throughout the country and is writing his autobiography. He has two grown children and lives with his wife, Eileen, in Los Angeles

Review:

An absolutely flat-out-wonderful collection of strange, funny, sad, bizarre stories from that unusual mind. -- USA Today

One of the few people able to make me laugh from my soul. -- Robin Williams

Satirical, refreshingly cruel and provocative. -- Los Angeles Times
