Audible Editor Reviews

The world’s great raconteurs include Homer, Moses, Mark Twain, and...Jeff Wayne?

Jeff "Big Daddy" Wayne is a comedian whose comedy albums include Ship Happens and Jokes I Heard on the Golf Course. In this audiobook, he turns his love for performing to telling stories of some of the best in the biz. Jeff’ll tell you all about Errol Flynn’s orgies, Debbie Reynold’s tendency to make of herself an unwanted guest, and Jerry Lewis’ telethons. The audiobook is also heavy on biographical details of Jeff himself.

Publisher's Summary

The dictionary defines "raconteur" as "one who tells stories with skill and wit". This is the perfect description of Jeff Wayne as he relates original stories of show-business legends Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Jerry Lewis, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, the Beatles, Bela Lugosi, Andy Kaufman, Jay Leno, Pavarotti, Gary Cooper, and a host of others.

Jeff Wayne is one of the busiest entertainers working today. He's done it all: television, theaters, comedy clubs, Las Vegas, and tours of Europe. Jeff's comic brilliance is only matched by his fascination with the truly great show-business talents. It has driven him to meet many of his idols and extract from them some of their best stories. Not that it's always been easy. After a grueling night with Debbie Reynolds, Jeff found himself begging the aging star to go home! Not to mention a very hilarious moment backstage with Jerry Lewis just as his famed telethon was about to go on the air!

So pour yourself a glass of wine, relax, and listen. Jeff will tell you what happened to Errol Flynn at the infamous orgy of Havana midgets! The naked truth behind Sheena Easton's outrageous backstage behavior! And the shocking reason the tape of Elvis' last concert must never be shown! Plus much, much more! Told with all the wit and relish that only a raconteur can!

Don't miss more humorous observations from Jeff Wayne.
