Laughter on the 23rd Floor

7 Male, 2 Female

Neil Simon Price: $9.99

This Broadway hit is a homage to the author's early days in show biz when he worked as a junior jokesmith for Sid Caesar's Your Show of Shows

He was stuck in a room with a bunch of the looniest comedy writers ever, who grew up to be the likes of Mel Brooks, Larry Gelbart and others

The play is a memoir told by Neil Simon's alter ego, Lucas. As the writers try to top each other with gags while competing for the attention of head madman Max Prince (the Sid Caesar character), Max contends with the NBC brass who fear his humor is too sophisticated for middle America

"Old style comedy: fast and furious" ~ Wall Street Journal

"One of [Simon's] funniest.... Comedy, comedy all the way" ~ Newsweek

"Enough laughs per minute to assure [it] a long run and many happy audiences" ~ USA Today

"The funniest comedy on Broadway in years and likely to remain the funniest comedy on Broadway for years" ~ Variety
