  • Abbott & Costello: Masters of Comedy

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 11 mins)
    • By Bud Abbott, Lou Costello

    Beloved movie and television stars Bud Abbott and Lou Costello made their name on the radio, and the resulting long-running radio show preserved a rich vaudeville tradition and sensational comedy sketches. The sarcasm of Abbott's stern straight man is the perfect comedic compliment to the muffled screams of Costello's blustery "baaaad boy."

    Frederick says: "Great retakes on entertaining the troops!"

    Where does Abbott & Costello rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Around the top 2 that I listened to.


    What other book might you compare Abbott & Costello to and why?

    The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth. This was funny but not in the way Abbott and Costello delivers the lines and actions.


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    The voice and emphasis on the commercial part, especially the Camel cigarette ads.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Too long in between episodes. Singing in variety shows is good, the idea of the comedy is just to keep people laughing.
