Growing Up Laughing reads like a guided tour of American comedy; it’s a book only Marlo Thomas could write. Born to comedy royalty, Marlo is one of the few people in show business to grow up surrounded by the greatest entertainers of the time. This landmark book is Thomas’s funny, honest, and heartwarming memoir of being Danny Thomas’s daughter, and of becoming a beloved comedienne in her own right. Growing Up Laughing is filled with stories about comedy superstars of the past and present—in addition to her own reminiscences, Marlo includes her personal conversations and interviews with today’s A-list comedians—including Jon Stewart, Chris Rock, Billy Crystal, Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Robin Williams, Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Ben and Jerry Stiller, Conan O’Brien, Lily Tomlin, Don Rickles, Whoopi Goldberg, Kathy Griffin, Joan Rivers, Alan Alda, George Lopez, Joy Behar, Steven Wright, and others.
