Loved the program; glad to have it on DV

Comments about PBS Make 'Em Laugh: The Funny Business Of America DVD:

We thoroughly enjoyed the "Make 'em laugh" program on PBS. Billy Crystal was excellent in his role, introducing the various commedians. It was wonderful seeing clips of our favorite shows we had not seen for decades. We were reluctant to leave the room for even a few minutes, in case we missed a really special part of the show. Now we don't have to worry, because we have it all on DVD!

I know we will enjoy watching the DVD again and again! Thank you for making it available for purchase!

Comments about PBS Make 'Em Laugh: The Funny Business Of America DVD:

Very good and in depth review of 20th century comedians. During the interviews, it was surprising how very intelligent many are. They know exactly what they are doing, and why. I was very impressed with a number of individuals.
