"I find myself always being drawn into Wes' comedic research and storytelling by its insights into the history, politics and sociology of the period explored. In that context, his gift is not only that of a researcher but also a "decoder" of what leads a reader to exclaim. 'Oh, so that's how he (the subject) got that way.'"

I, Red Skelton: Exit Laughing... or, A Man, His Movies, and Sometimes His Monkeys 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
If you enjoy the writing of author/scholar Wes Gehring, this is his most creatively personalized work, Gehring was the first writer given access to the comedian's massive collection of private papers, and after coupling this with several Skelton family member interviews (including his daughter and grand daughter), he wrote the award winning biography "Red Skelton: The Mask behind the Mask." Plus, Gehring had also written an earlier profile of the comedian "Seeing Red," which drew upon the author's various meetings and interviews with Skelton when the entertainer performed his one-man show in Indiana. Thus, Gehring's "I, Red Skelton: Exit Laughing, or A Man, His Movies and Sometimes His Monkey's" (a novelized memoir), almost seems as if the writer is channeling the great comedian.
