Books For The Road--What's So Funny?

Not too long ago we had to say goodbye to a favorite comedian, Tim Conway. I had no idea he had a book and when I found out, I had to have it. The title is What's So Funny? My Hilarious Life. It is worth the read. Lots of smiles and reminiscing.

Jane Scovell helped with the writing and Carol Burnett did the foreword. There are wonderful stories of his formative years and events that fueled the fires of his creative humor and the characters he gave us that are so beloved.

Of course for me, it was also easy to visualize a lot of the years he spent in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, since that is near where I have lived most of my life. But the adventures in McHale's Navy and the shenanigans on the Carol Burnett Show with Harvey Korman are some of the best parts.

I would recommend this for a good read on the road. Easy to follow and one that will ease those travel anxieties as you wait on connections. Enjoy the smiles.
