Anthony Balducci, 52, studied journalism at Baruch College in Manhattan and earned a criminology degree at the University of Florida. His first book, a biography of film comedian Lloyd Hamilton, was published by McFarland in 2009. The Funny Parts, a book detailing the history of gags and routines, was published by McFarland in 2012.
I enjoyed talking to Derek McLellan for his Dream Factory podcast. We had a lively conversation about the comedians featured in Eighteen Comedians of Silent Film. I thank Derek for his cordiality and insight. The podcast can be found here.
