Happy 70th to BILLY CRYSTAL
700 Sundays is still one of the best shows I've ever seen. He's a classic!
+1 One of my all-time favourite comics, and IMO best Oscars host since Bob Hope.
I read his autobiography-- perhaps it's better to call it his memoirs-- entitled Still Foolin' 'Em, which was a really good read. He's got some great anecdotes about famous people with whom he's rubbed shoulders over the years. Especially memorable were his reminiscences of Muhammad Ali and Mickey Mantle, among other great athletes.
He's had a pretty interesting life, and is surprisingly modest about all of his success!
