"Funniest Comedy Icons of the 20th Century" Book Event with Author John Stanley, May 21st at Florey's!

Florey's Books welcomes local author John Stanley as he discusses his new books, "The Funniest Comedy Icons of the 20th Century".

***Saturday, May 21st, 2pm-4pm***

About the Books:

Journey into a world of comedy featuring some of the best comedians and comediennes of a different time and place.
Dozens of encounters, each based on a one-on-one interview, some dating as far back as the 1960s, recalled by John Stanley, for thirty-three years an entertainment writer for the San Francisco Chronicle’s Datebook. Stanley specialized in exclusive moments with stars and up-and-coming stars, searching for how and why they had succeeded or were trying to succeed with comedy in the worlds of night clubs, television, and motion pictures.

About the Author:

John Stanley, graduate of San Francisco State College, spent 33 years covering the world of movies and TV for the San Francisco Chronicle’s Sunday “Pink” section. He is also the author of the six-edition “Creature Features Movie Guide” series, having hosted “Creature Features” in the San Francisco-Bay Area from 1979-1984. His autobiography, “I Was a TV Horror Host,” was released in 2007. He has made an estimated 2,000 crossword puzzles for magazines and since 1995 has made thousands of appearances teaching entertainment courses for Bay Area Classic Learning, at one time the most heavily attended Elderhostel in America.

Come by and talk to John about whatever’s on your mind: comedy, horror movies, Creature Features, or even the San Francisco Giants!
