From the Inside Flap:

"Finally a book by someone who actually worked at the original Saturday Night Live. Tom Davis writes in a heartfelt and hilarious style telling great stories from the world of show business and entertainment."--Dan Aykroyd

"Frankly, I'm surprised Tom was able to remember this much of the 60's, 70's and 80's. But I'm not surprised that my old partner was able to capture the times with such humor and such wisdom."--Al Franken

"Tom Davis has written a book any fan of American comedy will enjoy. His mind remains keen, his comic insights penetrating, his natural humor and humane persona evident throughout."--Dennis Perrin, author of MR. MIKE: The Life and Work of Michael O'Donoghue
