Heckler! chronicles the odyssey of comedian Bobby Kelton, who morphed from a shy kid growing up on Long Island, New York, to a comedy star on "The Tonight Show " and at Caesars Palace.

From the intimate comedy clubs in New York and Los Angeles to the big-time stages of Las Vegas, Bobby's stories of hecklers, stage-rushers and unexpected showstoppers prove how tough it is to be a stand-up comedian. He shares behind-the-scenes tales from backstage at "The Tonight Show," touring with Tom Jones, trading barbs with Mickey Mantle, causing havoc with Larry David, and accidentally flattening Gladys Knight during a tennis match with her Pips: "If she had been really angry with me, I easily could have ended up on a midnight train to Georgia."

Heckler! is a funny and poignant look at a comedian's journey and the ups and downs of making people laugh for a living.

"Heckler” is actually quite a serious book and likely useful to anyone who has got the guts to get on the stage. Sort of reminded me of a book someone had given me right before I stared law school in 1991. It was called “The first year law student survival guide”. Heckler is easy and took me only two hours to finish the entire book. Ike Quadri
