The most unusual patter book ever published in the field of magic and comedy. Created from Gene Gordon's comedy notebooks he kept (handwritten) for over 40 years, this new hardbound book features 1300 jokes, gags, one-liners, quips, and bits of comedy wisdom for use by comedians, magicians, clowns, speakers, ministers, MCS, story-tellers, ventriloquists, humorists . . . in fact, anyone who uses words to make people laugh.
The 224-page book features 50 old time photos to illustrate the chapters, plus 15 original Ed Harris cartoons, and the entire text is printed in brown ink to give the book an old-fashioned, quaint sort of look. But don't let that fool you! The material in LAUGHTER LEGACY is just as funny today as when Gene Gordon first wrote, read, or heard it. Plus, you'll find many updated many lines and literally hundreds of new jokes with the help of friends like Sammy Smith, Steve Taylor, Duane Laflin, Bruce Johnson, Jeff Dickerson, Many Hahne, and more.
