Warmup Guy, The, Hardback Book


When the cameras are off, he takes the stage. Television shows like Friends, Full House, and Growing Pains might take only 20 minutes to air, but tapings frequently last several hours.

From the 1970s to the early 2000s, Robert Perlow was the go-to warmup comedian on television sets, where he was responsible for keeping the live studio audience engaged and laughing.

In this hilarious tell-all book, Perlow offers a personal, behind-the-scenes look at some of television's most famous shows and actors.

With stories including Tim Allen's on-set meltdown, an improv class with Robin Williams, and a close friendship with Alan Thicke, Perlow divulges everything from the good and the bad to the downright outrageous!
