Reviews - What do customers think about Milt and Marty: The Longest Lasting and Least Successful Comedy Writing Duo in Showbiz History?
"A funny" in every sentece Sep 21, 2008
If scientists ever dissect the brains of Tom Leopold and Bob Sand, they may just discover that these hilarious comedy writers put the fun in funny. As Tom and Bob romp through side-splitting escapades with Milt and Marty, they cleverly incorporate "a funny" in every sentence. Don't skip your meds when you sit down to read this, as you will need the extra oomph to power you through the hysterical page-long sentences that have no punctuation in sight.
Inch wide, inch deep Aug 23, 2008
This book is about an inch wide and an inch deep, but it's funny. Almost as if they pulled together every bad comedy line and strung it together into a book. You'll feel guilty reading it, but you'll love it. (Just get a dust cover off War and Peace to cover it up.) It also contains the most offensive funny line I've ever seen in print. Silly fun.
Insanely funny Jun 8, 2008
I couldn't stop laughing. You can't go wrong with this book (especially if you're a comedian or comedy writer).
Best inside-TV-script-writing book ever written; plus it's bitterly, bitingly funny. May 1, 2008
Bob Sand and Tom Leopold, two veteran television writers with decades-long careers, have written a caustic, hilarious, bile-filled, real-life "mockumentary" on the TV comedy business.
From the book's wild and disgusting cover, to the endless side-splitting venting they lay out for readers, this book is not one to read in a public place. You may end up trying to suppress waves of laughter and cause yourself to be ejected from a cafe, restaurant or bookstore. This book is dangerous to pregnant women, children, other TV writers, many famous comedians and half the rest of the world. Beware.
You'll Laugh 'til You PLOTZ! Apr 17, 2008
"Milt & Marty" will take you on the most hilarious journey of your life. Irreverent and at times, appalling, it's a MUST READ for anyone who dreams of breaking into showbiz, and for those who have had the misfortune to do so. I laughed so hard I almost "voided" in my designer jeans.
