Synopsis by Alice Day
Phyllis Diller reads Ludlow Laughs by Jon Agee in this episode of the highly acclaimed Reading Rainbow series. In the story, Ludlow seldom shows any signs of happiness, but something happens to him that changes his attitude and that of the people around him. Laughter and silliness are the topics of the program, as LeVar Burton gets lessons in being funny. Another segment takes viewers backstage at a comedy club, where a stand-up comic talks about the challenges of making an audience laugh. The books reviewed by the young critics include Pig William, Make Me Laugh, and Shake My Sillies Out.
