Joey Adams Wrote a Whole Lot of Books.

The late Borscht Belt comedian Joey Adams, (Joseph Abramowitz, 1911-1999), was a sometimes vaudeville, nightclub and TV comic,  a stage actor, a comedy/joke/gag writer, a comedy/showbiz historian, a film actor, a newspaper columnist, a radio host, a dial a comic, Friars club Roastmaster, a husband to society/gossip columnist Cindy Adams, a friend of celebrities and politicians... and most prolifically, an author of many, many books.

Here's the proof,  some with various covers, most if not all now long out of print...
