    Decades before The Daily Show, The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour proved there was a place on television for no-holds-barred political comedy with a decidedly antiauthoritarian point of view. In this explosive, revealing history of the show, veteran entertainment journalist David Bianculli tells the fascinating story of its three-year network run---and the cultural impact that's still being felt today.

    Tim says: "Fascinating Read!"
    "Almost unlistenable"
    Overall

    The narration is so off-putting as to make it difficult to pick up the book for the next listening. The up and down of his intonation makes it necessary to dial the volume up to hear the quiet parts, assaulting the eardrums a second later. And his bare attempts at imitating Pat Paulson's voice and timing, or Richard Nixon, or Lyndon Johnson, or Bobby Kennedy, grate on the nerves like dragging fingernails on a blackboard. Only the interesting subject matter elevates this rating to a 2.
