A Great, Silly Grin : Looking back from an era in which Americans rely upon comedians for the most up-to-the-minute social and political commentary (think Jay Leno or Saturday Night Live), how did it happen that we came to trust the sideways glance, the knowing aside, and the dead-on impersonation to tell us something about the world that straight headlines fail to do? The answer, as Humphrey Carpenter shows in this informative and uproarious book, is that we owe it all to our cousins across the Atlantic. It was the British satire "boom" of the early 1960s that created a motherlode of styles, material, and formats for generations of bright comedians and social critics in America as well as in Britain, and set the standard for clever humor that still determines our tastes in comedy and commentary today.
