Book Review - The Warmup Guy

About the Book
When the cameras are off, he takes the stage.

Television shows like Friends, Full House, and Growing Pains might take only 20 minutes to air, but tapings frequently last several hours. From the 1970s to the early 2000s, Robert Perlow was the go-to warmup comedian on television sets, where he was responsible for keeping the live studio audience engaged and laughing. In this hilarious tell-all book, Perlow offers a personal, behind-the-scenes look at some of television’s most famous shows and actors. With stories including Tim Allen’s on-set meltdown, an improv class with Robin Williams, and a close friendship with Alan Thicke, Perlow divulges everything from the good and the bad to the downright outrageous!

My Take on the Book
What a great insider story that really brings you inside so many of the shows that I grew up with. I loved the stories of this amazing man and the behind-the-scenes look that he shares. What I wouldn't have given to be in his shoes while he was warming up the crowds. While I am sure it may have been a bit nerve-wracking, this book really lets him shine and brings him full on into the limelight!
