Happy heavenly birthday to the great Sidney Poitier!
Hack wrote his in honor of our beloved friend Jesse Merlin opening in Jerry Springer: The Opera at the San Jose Playhouse next week. We tried to explain to him that paternity tests were Maury Povich’s shtick rather than Springer’s, to which Hack testily replied “When Merlin appears in an opera based on Povich, I’ll write another book that sets the record straight.”
When Hack described a frustrating situation he was caught in between two companies that were screwing him over and then throwing the blame on the other company to his friend Snow Mercy, she replied “You’re like the Three Stooges. You’re Larry.”
Hack was so traumatized at being likened to Larry Fine in that scenario that he wrote this book as therapy.
