    He Killed!

    I loved this book! It's a memoir of stand-up comic Sammy Shore's life as he reminisces about getting his big break in show business opening for Elvis. He tells all the crazy routines that Elvis loved and shows a side of Elvis I had never heard of before. There are hilarious stories from Sammy's youth to the present that kept me laughing all the way to the end. Also, dozens of photographs give the stories extra interest and warmth. A very funny book for Elvis fans and comedy fans!
