I Must Say

TITLE: I Must Say: My Life As a Humble Comedy Legend
AUTHOR: Martin Short (with David Kamp)

Comic performer Short's memoir is an entertaining, breezy read, laugh out loud funny in many places, yet poignant when he discusses his love for his late wife, Nancy Dolman Short. Excerpts of his comedy bit and some nice photos accompany the text. Short is one of my favorite performers and it's good to know his positive attitude isn't an act; this is a happy, resilient man who loves to spread cheer and laughs, and it comes across on every page.
