“The Sunshine Boys” by Neil Simon
The comedy team of “Lewis and Clark” were top-billed vaudeville headliners for over forty years. Now they aren’t even speaking. When CBS requests them for a “History of Comedy” retrospective, a grudging reunion brings Al and Willie back together, along with a flood of memories, miseries, and laughs. “Another hit for Simon in a shrewdly balanced, splendid and rather touching slice of the show-biz life.” A masterful comedy by the master of comedy himself!
