Face it, we all love weird, fascinating and sometimes morbid stuff.
Well, this book gives you all of that!
Tonight, Conway welcomes Jeff Abraham and Burt Kearns to the show to talk about their new book, The Show Won't Go On: The Most Shocking, Bizarre, and Historic Deaths of Performers on Stage. While millions of people have enjoyed live performances from comedians, actors, magicians, dancers, musicians, radio hosts and more, not many know that for centuries, some of those performers have keeled over and died on stage....in the middle of a performance!
Well, at least you can say that they died doing what they loved.
Jeff, a PR executive and one of Hollywood's top comedy historians, and Burt, an award-winning TV and film producer, have extensively researched these deaths and put together the most famous, dramatic, ironic, obscure and monumental ones in their book. They've captured not only the deaths, but little-known facts and details about those performances that might surprise you, ultimately honoring their legacies.
