Look what Jordan R. Young included in the LA/OC Theatre Examiner's Gift Guide
“ ‘Greetings, Gate!’: The Story of Professor Jerry Colonna” offers an intimate look at the pop-eyed, walrus-mustachioed comedian who was the perennial thorn in Bob Hope’s side. This anecdotal biography by his son Bob Colonna takes us from the one-time trombonist’s Boston childhood and his big band days to the zany radio shows—scripted in part by Jack Douglas, the “mad dog” of comedy writers—to the film appearances and USO tours. (Available in paperback from BearManor Media).
