Finally, he stops going out for his comic material and concentrates on his own stuff, gambling on his ability to not only act out the laughs but to think them up, too.

Critic Reviews for Always Leave Them Laughing

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

[Berle] remains on the screen for nearly two hours, pulling every stunt imaginable. Much of it is hilarious, but one becomes almost shell-shocked from the constant stream of gags.

A polished sentimental backstage biopic about making it to the top as a comic.
