Books by Nick Santa Maria
Nick is thrilled to announce the publication of his latest book, The Annotated Abbott & Costello.
Co-authored with renowned British historian Matthew Coniam, this long-awaited book delves into the films of the most popular comedians of the 1940s, whose burlesque-inspired routines enthralled audiences on both radio and television. However, their films have oddly not received the same level of attention from critics and writers as those of other comedy teams. This book is a scene-by-scene, film-by-film guide to their movies, making a compelling case for their inclusion at the very top table of comic artists.
Featuring new research and some surprising revelations, the book will introduce nervous newcomers to the delights of this uproarious team and provide confirmed fans with the ultimate companion to their work. Also included is a foreword by John Landis, the celebrated director and Abbott and Costello devotee.
