On March 24, 1994 -- the day Lewis Grizzard died -- America lost an opinionated and angry and loving and controversial voice. Worst of all, it lost a funny voice, a voice that saw the absurd and hilarious in everyday life -- from the battle between the sexes to the hypocrisy of political blather to the all-important differences between good 'ol Georgia Bulldog-rooting Southerners and Harvard-attending Yankees. If Lewis Grizzard fought for anything, he fought for Americans to keep their sense of humor. He rallied against political correctness and ranted and raved against what he called the "Thought Police."
Yes, Lewis was fierce in his beliefs, but he didn't care if you shared his opinions. He was more interested in making his audience think. Or shaking them up. Or just plain getting them teed off. If he had to express an outrageous opinion to do so, so be it. It Wasn't Always Easy, But I Sure Had Fun is drawn from a collection of his previous audios, including I Took a Lickin' and Kept on Tickin'; Elvis is Dead and I Don't Feel so Good Myself; I Haven't Understood Anything Since 1962; My Daddy Was a Pistol and I'm a Son of a Gun; If Love Were Oil, I'd be About a Quart Low; and You Can't Put No Boogie-Woogie on the King of Rock and Roll The collection features some of his most outrageous opinions and tender thoughts. It is the project he was working on when he died; it contains the work that he thought represented the best of the last decade of his writing.
Over the years, there was nothing that Lewis shied away from tackling -- sex, politics, culture, men, women, mothers, fathers, football, honor, racism, the past, the present, or the future. As Lewis's final words, It Wasn't Always Easy,But I Sure Had Fun is a fitting tribute.

Lewis Grizzard, Jr., was an American writer and humorist known for his commentary on the American South. Although he spent his early career as a newspaper sportswriter and editor, becoming the sports editor of the Atlanta Journal at age 23, he was much better known for his humorous newspaper columns in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He was also a popular stand-up comedian and lecturer. Grizzard published a total of 25 books, including collections of his columns (e.g., Chili Dawgs Always Bark at Night), expanded versions of his stand-up comedy routines (I Haven't Understood Anything Since 1962), and the autobiographical If I Ever Get Back to Georgia, I'm Gonna Nail My Feet to the Ground. Although much of his comedy discussed the South and Grizzard's personal and professional lives, it was also a commentary on issues prevalent throughout America, including relationships between men and women (e.g., If Love Were Oil, I'd Be About a Quart Low), politics, and health. Grizzard passed away in 1994.
