Read how Nat held up traffic at a busy intersection in Connecticut while his partner sang a folk song. Or the day he represented himself as head counselor at a boys’ camp and told parents fantastical stories of their boys’ sexual misconduct. In this book I have attempted to capture the humor of Ben and Nat, two of the funniest men on this planet.
Ben Rosenthal was my father and Nat Rosenthal my uncle. They were two of the funniest men I have ever known. They did not think of themselves as comedians, nor did their humor proceed from scripts. They simply got up in the morning and things happened.
The following stories are all true.
