Marc presents a new podcast mini-series chronicling the seedy underbelly, forgotten heroes, and subversive oddballs of comedy history.
 
Today's episode: The Hood, The Schmuck & Miss New Jersey Legs. Find out what happened to Allan Drake, one of several Mob-connected comedians in mid-century America. His connections got him huge gigs at The Flamingo in Las Vegas and the Copacabana in New York. Those same connections would destroy his life and keep his name from reaching the history books. Hear from Mob-era comedians Jack Carter, Dick Curtis, Shecky Greene, and more. 
 
Classic Showbiz is hosted by Kliph Nesteroff, author of The Comedians: Drunks, Thieves, Scoundrels and the History of American Comedy. Get the full series now on Stitcher Premium and Howl.
