Reviews

"As comedy writers know, the rarest of all creatures is the comedy exec who's actually funny. Art Bell is funny as hell, he understands comedy, and that's why Comedy Central was born and why it thrived. Constant Comedy is a great, fun read."--Michael Weithorn, Creator and Executive Producer of The King of Queens
"Buy this book. Right now. Don't even finish reading this blurb. Just walk to the counter and buy the book. Constant Comedy is the funniest behind-the-scenes memoir I've ever read, full of crazy characters, plot twists, and suspense. It's the story of how Art Bell built Comedy Central into one of cable TV's most successful channels, which meant dealing with insane comedians and even more insane TV executives in a rough-and-tumble workplace. Somehow he made it all work. Did I mention that this book is funny?"--Dan Lyons, New York Times bestselling author of DISRUPTED
