Trivia

Richard Benjamin previously directed a similar film, My Favorite Year (1982). Both films feature a young comedy writer on a 1950's TV show that is based on Your Show of Shows (1950), and stars a Sid Caesar-like comedian. Mark Linn-Baker, who plays one of the writers in "Laughter," played the young writer in My Favorite Year (1982), which was produced (uncredited) by Mel Brooks, a fellow writer with Neil Simon on Caesar's 1950's TV show Your Show of Shows (1950).

Great film
6 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I found the cast to be very good. Mr Lane was exceptional as were other members of the cast. I must say that it was in my opinion as his best movie he has done. I have seen this movie many times, from this my interest in him has grown. His character Max Prince reminded me of his true character. Serious yet entertaining. I personally would like to see the play for this movie as I have heard that the cast were different to the ones in the movie, this would probably allow me to judge which was more superior. I must agree with the fact that the music could have been chosen better, as to could be said of the location, my recommendation would be Chicago or new york.
