Internationaler Buchtitel. In englischer Sprache. Verlag: TEMPLE UNIV PR, L=210mm, B=139mm, H=23mm, Gew.=386gr, [GR: 25590 - TB/Geschichte/Sonstiges], [SW: - Performing Arts], Kartoniert/Broschiert, Klappentext: He argues that Allen did not merely transfer vaudeville routines to a non-visual medium as did Eddie Cantor, Ed Wynn, and others. Allen developed a comedic style that depended on word play, sound effects, and on his audience's ability and readiness to imagine a visual world in which his eccentric characters operated. Havig illustrates his story with numerous examples of Allen's humor, with fascinating anecdotes, and excerpts from radio broadcasts. In accounting for the comedian's success, he deals with vaudeville, comedy writing, sponsor's demands and censorship of material, and the organizational world of radio broadcasting companies. Describing radio as "an instrument of wit," Fred Allen wrote: "on radio you could do subtle writing because you had access to the imagination... that was why I liked radio. We had some fun." Readers will also have some fun remembering or discovering for the first time Allen's Alley and the magic of radio comedy in its prime. Author note: Alan Havig is Professor of History and American Studies at Stephens College in Columbia Missouri.
