This is Mel Calvert's second book. His first one "How I Quit Smoking and Lived To Tell About It" is currently available on Amazon.com and in Kindle Books.
This one, written in the same lighthearted and humorous style as his first, is a gathering of jokes, stories, quips and anecdotes from his fifty-plus years in the world of show business. As a comedian, he worked his first gig in Las Vegas at the Fremont Hotel on the same stage with a nineteen year-old kid named Wayne Newton. This hilarious story is told in detail along with other equally humorous tales from his appearances in Vegas.
From Las Vegas he takes us on tour with him and his beautiful partner and wife of over forty years to many exotic foreign ports around the world with stories from each of them guaranteed to lighten your day and make you glad for your time spent.
If you have a sense of humor, you will definitely enjoy "A Funny Thing Happened To Me On The Way To My Funeral" by up-and-coming new author, Mel Calvert.
