Fresh Air: Just for Laughs Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Terry Gross brings out the best in the greatest minds on the planet--including the funny ones. Drawn from her long-running, award-winning public radio show, this new collection features in-depth interviews with the bright, shining wits of our time. One of the nation's leading interviewers, Gross is incisive, respectful, and always well-informed. She puts her guests at ease, which makes for rewarding listening. Insights abound and the humor is unstoppable.

Review:

"Delivering laughs, pointed critique on Hollywood, race, political correctness, and the indignities of old age, these conversations between NPR's Terri Gross and stars of comedy features unmissable interviews with heavyweights like George Carlin, Woody Allen, Joan Rivers, Steve Martin, and Sarah Silverman. Listeners will delight in learning just how Tina Fey channeled Sarah Palin (it has more to do with camera angles than you'd think), Trey Parker and Matt Stone's impish delight in riling up Tom Cruise, and Steven Colbert and Jon Stewart singing about the merits of Hanukkah. Other highlights include a rare out-of-character interview with Sacha Baron Cohen, Will Ferrell's awkward meeting with George W. Bush, and Aziz Ansari goading Gross into saying naughty words on air. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

About the Author

Fresh Air with TERRY GROSS, the Peabody Award-winning weekday magazine of contemporary arts and issues, is one of public radio's most popular programs. Terry Gross started out in public radio in 1973, at WBFO in Buffalo. Soon after she became producer and host of Fresh Air, then a live, daily show broadcast locally, at WHYY in 1975. Fresh Air premiered nationally in its current hour-long version in 1987, designed as the lead in to the program All Things Considered. A recipient of the 2003 Edward R. Murrow award, Terry Gross has been called by the L.A. Times "One of the most thought-provoking interviewers working in the media today."
