“At first glance, David Steinberg might seem like too much of a mensch to really spill the beans about his chosen profession . . . the venerated stand-up comic, actor, and sitcom director, has impeccable nice-guy credentials . . . [He] truly admires his peers and understands what makes them tick. And he proves to be a genial, generous raconteur and reciter of showbiz lore . . . charming.”—Dave Itzkoff, The New York Times
“David has always been a comedy hero to me. One of his many gifts is the ability to inspire funny people to be even funnier, as you will discover in this truly hilarious, insightful book.”—Martin Short
“I’m lucky. I know and love David Steinberg. You don’t. Now's your chance. Don’t blow it!”—Larry David
“Being a part of David's life and now this wonderful book has been a special joy. He's hilarious, and brilliant, plus you can talk to him about anything, and he doesn't charge you for it. This book is like going to a comedy museum except you can laugh out loud and nobody says, ‘Shhh’. . .”—Billy Crystal
“David Steinberg is one of the funniest men on the planet. His book is just like his comedy—wickedly smart, emotional, revealing and hilarious. I loved this book.”—Don Winslow, #1 internationally bestselling author of The Cartel, The Force, and The Border
“David’s memories blow me away. All these years later, he remembers that Elaine May sat in the front row at the Hollywood Bowl and roared at my routine at the first gay rights fundraising concert. He also reminded me that Richard Pryor wrote for my 1973 Lily Tomlin TV special! In the words of Edith Ann, ‘and that’s the truth!’”—Lily Tomlin
“David Steinberg has always been one of my favorite comedians. I memorized his album, Disguised as a Normal Person when it came out. It was a huge thrill to work with him when he directed some episodes of Seinfeld. He will always be one of my comedy heroes.”—Jerry Seinfeld
“David is truly a national treasure, even though he’s Canadian, who is loved, admired and revered by all in the comedy world. You’re going to have a great time reading these stories about all the comedic greats by one of the greatest.”—Susie Essman

I was pretty excited when I came across a sentence early in the book which used the words "'70s" and "different from." Proper punctuation ( or lack of unnecessary punctuation) and good grammar are rare and beautiful things. Kudos to Steinberg and his editor.
