YOO HOO PROSPERITY! THE EDDIE CANTOR FIVE-YEAR PLAN (AUDIOBOOK by Eddie Cantor and David Freedman

Yoo-Hoo Prosperity: The Eddie Cantor Five-Year Plan by Eddie Cantor and David Freedman

Eddie Cantor was a huge star of Vaudeville, Broadway, Old Time Radio, silent movies, and talkies. He was awarded an honorary Academy Award in 1956 for distinguished service to the film industry, in a long career that spanned three decades and such memorable films as Special Delivery, Kid Boots, Whoopee!, and Roman Scandals.

According to Eddie, the definition of prosperity is “the time right before an election.” In 1931, he wrote with co-author David Freedman Yoo-Hoo Prosperity: The Eddie Cantor Five-Year Plan, released as a follow-up to his Caught Short. This irreverent look at the causes of the Great Depression offers humorous solutions for putting the country back on track. H. L. Mencken, the most prominent newspaperman, book reviewer, and political commentator of his day, asserted that “. . . these books did more to pull America out of the Depression than all government measures combined.”

This short book gives Eddie's views as if he was delivering a stand-up comedy routine, and provides solutions to Depression dilemmas, such as world prohibition and nominating The Marx Brothers for Attorneys General.

This is not tongue-in-cheek humor—this is big-as-banjo-eyes hilarity, now released in an easy-to-hear audio book edition for the first time.

Who knew true yoo-hoo? Only Eddie Cantor.
