BOB MILLS, one of Bob Hope’s long time writers, will be presenting a program of fond memories and video clips at Crowell Public Library on Tuesday, March 8 at 7:00 p.m. in the Barth Community Room. Author of The Laugh Makers: A Tribute to Bob Hope’s Incredible Gag Writers published in 2009, Bob’s book was named one of Leonard Maltin’s “Top 20 Year-End Picks.” Bob will show clips from the many television shows he helped write for Hope and others and deliver those behind-the-scenes stories that will have you rolling in the aisles. A native of San Francisco, Bob Mills worked on the Dinah Shore Show, the Steve Allen Show and the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts before joining Bob Hope as a staff writer in 1977. He traveled the world with Hope for the next seventeen years. From 1992 to 1996, he co-wrote a daily topical humor column for the Los Angeles Times called Laugh Lines. In 1999, he became an enrichment lecturer for Crystal Cruises and for the next five years performed shows based on his experiences with Hope. (notparoo)
