Publisher's Summary

George Burns' career spanned the history of modern show business. From vaudeville to Vegas, radio to television, and books to films, he was one of the last great entertainers. 100 Years, 100 Stories is a testament of his comedic brilliance and a shining example of why he became one of America's national treasures.

Burns left his legion of fans a priceless collection of humorous stories as an enduring gift and testament to his wit and charm. This audio program, voiced by the gifted impersonator John Byner, finds the legendary centenarian recounting his personal favorite stories of the events and personalities he experienced and encountered during his career. He tells us of other entertainment giants who crossed his path ¿ including Al Jolson, Groucho Marx, Jack Benny, Bob Hope, Ann-Margaret, Goldie Hawn, and, of course, his beloved wife, Gracie Allen ¿ bringing his unique, dry humor to each anecdote.

    "Almost an evening with Burns"

    A hefty excerpt of the book - it has 45 stories read by Byner, plus a half dozen authentic radio scenes with the real George and Gracie, plus a nice tribute by his friend Berle. I was listening at work and snorted and squealed in laughter in front of my colleagues. Byner is an OK reader, and breaks into impersonations of the stars Burns tells jokes about. Some of the jokes miss, and sometimes you just know a story would've been funnier told by Burns himself, but overall it's a fine one-hour. Why they shot only half the book, I'll never know. And don't listen at work.
