From acclaimed cultural and film historian James Curtis comes a major biography, the first in more than two decades, of Buster Keaton - a person who elevated physical comedy to the highest of arts and whose ingenious films remain as startling, innovative, modern, and irresistible today as they were when they beguiled audiences almost a century ago.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
