It's not hard to see why George Burns is considered one of the greatest comedians in American history. In 100 Years, 100 Stories fans can get a glimpse of Burns's past in vaudeville, radio, film and the dawning age of television. This audiobook has laugh-out-loud storytelling expertly performed by John Byner. His impressions of Burns's cast of characters (such as W.C. Fields, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Groucho Marx) add tremendous flavor to Burns's already hysterical yarns. Also deeply touching are Milton Berle's musings about the comedian. The entire package is a grand testimony to the joy of humor that George Burns thrived on throughout his century of life. R.A.P. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
