I had the opportunity to direct this unique Simon show that visits his time on Your Show of Shows and Caesar's Hour with the funniest writers in show business at the time. Not only does the show look at censorship and McCarthy-ism and the effect it had on these artists, but it reminds the audience to have fun while you can because nothing lasts forever.

While it's not as often produced and is criticized for not really having a plot and just being one liner after one liner, give this one a look. You may find something in this underrated, bittersweet laugh riot.
