              BACK IN PRINT AND BESSER THAN EVER!For more than six decades, Joe Besser brought gales of laughter to millions--in vaudeville, on Broadway, on radio, in motion pictures, and on television. From his days working as a bumbling assistant to the world-famous Thurston the Magician, he... carved out success with his own act--that of a childlike sissy who brandished his foils with a flick of the wrist and such hilarious verbal assaults as Ooh, you crazy you! and Not so f-a-s-t! From stage to film and television screens, the famed roly-poly comedian left an indelible mark-from starring in his own feature films and short-subject series for Columbia Pictures, to dishing out huge laughs on scores of popular programs of the day, most notably as the malevolent brat Stinky on The Abbott and Costello Show, to stepping in to replace Shemp Howard after his death as a member of Three Stooges comedy team. Followed by countless more laugh out-loud performances in movies and on television, from playing the frustrated superintendent, Jillson, on The Joey Bishop Show to voicing Saturday morning cartoons, his legacy still lives on today, thanks to reruns of his classic work. Illustrating a passing age of American humor, ONCE A STOOGE, ALWAYS A STOOGE tells the whole story. Jam-packed with timeless remembrances, Besser vividly recounts it all-the personal ups and downs, the classic skits and routines that became his hallmark, and behind-the-the scenes stories of show business icons who enriched his life and career, including Abbott and Costello, Fred Allen, Jack Benny, Milton Berle, Sammy Davis, Jr., Jerry Lewis, Olsen and Johnson, and many others. Previously unpublished anecdotes incorporated throughout, plus hundreds of new, many rare and one-of-a-kind illustrations and extensive appendices of the legendary funnyman's stage, film, radio and TV appearances, round out this charming and thoughtfully written memoir.
