Marlo Thomas’ Growing Up Laughing: My Story and the Story of Funny is exactly what the title claims. Thomas tells the reader about her life and growing up being the daughter of comedian Danny Thomas. It was a daily occurrence for her to see people like George Burns, Bob Hope, Sid Ceasar, and many others. Not to mention viewing a hotel as home with room service. Needless to say, this autobiography is filled with fun stories about her life and the people in it.
Another great thing about this book is that Thomas interviews different comedians and shares her findings in the beginning of each chapter. While she is talking about the interview she explains what makes people laugh, which isn’t always a one line joke. This is a wonderfully well written book that is sure to tell you about growing up with famous parents and keep laughing as you read.
