The Hollywood Reporter Like Overweight Sensation

Long-awaited review in THR. 

Huge thanks to my brother Neil who, as they say in the Mafia, is a connected guy. 

Neil knows EVERYBODY!

Key review quote,

"The story of [Sherman's] surprising rise, his heartfelt comic art form, his impact on the image of Jews in media as well as his rapid fall from grace -- leading up to his death only a decade later at age 48 -- is told with intimate details, an affectionate touch of humanity and lots of his parody lyrics in the well-researched book Overweight Sensation: The Life and Comedy of Allan Sherman by Mark Cohen."
