Billy Crystal tells the stories of his youth, growing up in the jazz world of Manhattan, his teenage years, and finally adulthood. The Tony Award-winning show is a funny and poignant exploration of family and fate, loving and loss.
How are you feeling?
Well, I'm deeply depressed. All of the great leaders of the world are dead. Moses is dead, Buddha is dead, Gandhi is dead, and I'm not feeling so hot myself.

I agree completely. In fact, it amazes -me- how many people go crazy for Christopher Guest's improv-style movies like "Waiting for Guffman" and "A Mighty Wind" and know absolutely nothing about this (almost) prequel! Corky St. Clair? No, you mean Chip Dimentibella. ("The Swerdlow bris? Oyster Bay? I was the dancing deck of cards!")
To this day, my brothers, cousins and I always pepper our conversations with quotes from DGMS. "Death or no death, you never leave a show!" "Look! I'm Eric Heiden! I'm winning four gold medals!" "Have another vat of gin before you you come to the work, chief." Agreed: you don't have to watch the stand-up more than once. But everything else is genius and bears repeated watching. Know it. Love it. Pine for the DVD release.
