9781905264186: Milt and Marty: The Longest Lasting and Least Successful Comedy Writing Duo in Showbiz History

Milt Wagonman and Marty "The X Is Silent!" Sloyxne's ongoing, obscene, absurd, upliftingly scatological, always hysterical, and profoundly unsuccessful half-century campaign to become regularly employed comedy writers in Hollywood knows no bounds. To this day, they continue to ignore restraining orders as they stalk and park in the driveways of Hollywood's leading lights.

About the Author:

About the authors: Tom Leopold has written for television on such shows as Seinfeld and Cheers. With Harry Shearer, he wrote J Edgar! (A Musical Fantasia on the Life of J. Edgar Hoover). Bob Sand has written for television on such shows as Laverne and Shirley and Full House.

From Publishers Weekly:

TV writers Leopold (Seinfeld, Cheers) and Sand (Laverne and Shirley, Full House) reimagine themselves in their wonderfully repugnant fiction debut. By 1968, the infamous comedy writing team of Milt Wagonman and Marty The 'X' Is Silent Sloyxne have become two washed-up, obnoxious 70-somethings who couldn't even get blacklisted during McCarthyism. When young East Coasters Tom and Bob move to L.A. to launch their writing careers, they encounter Milt and Marty on their first gig—writing for sitcom pilot Give Your Uncle Back His Legs. In a desperate mission to survive in Tinseltown, Milt and Marty attempt to hitch themselves to Tom and Bob's rising star, and the jokes pour out like schmaltz on the borscht belt. As Marty notes: We're like two spent matches afloat in the crapper of a Beverly Wilshire banquet floor men's room... waiting for the bar mitzvah boy's fat self-conscious uncle... to flush us into the sewers of Beverly Hills. Page after page of such observations make for an outrageously disturbing debut. (May)
