BOB HOPE BACKSTAGE: Kennedy Center Gala Lucille Ball “Hey, Look Him Over!” 1983

In 1983, Bob Hope was honored at a black-tie gala in Washington, DC to honor his 81st birthday. Guests who would perform on the stage of the Opera House of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts included Ronald Reagan, then president, Lucille Ball, Dudley Moore, Tom Selleck, Barbara Mandrell, Loretta Lynn, Phyllis Diller, Howard Cosell, George C. Scott, Kermit the Frog, Sheena Easton, Flip Wilson, Brooke Shields, Twiggy, Tommy Tune, and Dolores Hope. You can read all about the how Hope worked with his guests and his writers and what happened behind-the-scenes of these classic Bob Hope video clips by reading my book “THE LAUGH MAKERS: A Behind-the-Scenes Tribute to Bob Hope’s Incredible Gag Writers.” Says “laugh-In’s” Gary Owens: “The Laugh Makers is the book we’ve all been waiting for. It’s jam-packed with stories, anecdotes and un-retouched photos from a fondly remembered past, recalling often hilarious, sometimes heartwarming, and always touching tales of legendary stars, near-legendary stars and one or two complete failures — which happens in show business. You can look it up in your Funk & Wagnalls.” To get your copy, just click on this Amazon link: www.amazon.com Or this Barnes & Noble link: search.barnesandnoble.com Or, if you’d prefer the KINDLE e-version for .99, click here: www.amazon.com
