    I was given a review copy in exchange for a fair review All opinions are my own I love this book When I saw the title and name I immediately thought I liked Andy Griffith as Opie’s Dad on The Andy Griffith Show When I got the book I realized I had the wrong guy Anthony Griffith is also a comedian and has been for over 30 years Many have not heard of him because he is a clean comic and it seems like all the foul mouthed ones get famousHe grew up on the South Side of Chicago and worked hard at his craft He was finally able to achieve his dream of appearing on The Tonight Show He did this than once and it led to several other gigs including acting in films Sadly as his career was reaching a high his personal life was at an all time lowHe was married to the love of his life Brigitte and still is to this day She co wrote this book and they take turns telling their story Their baby is born very sick and died of cancer at age three He never told anyone about this tragedy as he didn’t want pity Eventually years later he tells all while speaking at a Moth presentation I don’t want to cry so I did not watch the video of it but if you are interested click hereOn top of all that he also has MS He kept that as a secret for years but eventually told the public because it has made him almost blind and tough to get around The book may sound sad but it is uplifting to read about how the couple get through all this together and both live full lives helping others

    This is a great biography written by Anthony Griffith and his wife Brigitte Most of the chapters have portions written by both and the headings indicate who wrote what I enjoyed this book and think any comedian fan of Anthony Griffith or fans of comedy in general will enjoy this storyThanks to Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review
