New Eddie Carroll DVDs available
When Eddie Carroll passed away, a lot of people commented to me that they had been sorry that they could not have seen him perform. Now I am happy to say that there are two DVDs available which can help you enjoy and remember Eddie:
Jack Benny: Laughter in Bloom- It's here!
At long last! The complete video of Eddie's one-man performance as
Jack Benny. If you never saw it, or saw it many times and loved it,
you've got to have this DVD in your collection. Buy

Eddie Carroll: A Life in Bloom - When we knew
the end was near, Carolyn told me that she was going to have a life
celebration for Eddie about 4-6 weeks afterwards. She asked me to name
it. It didn't take me long to come up with "A Life in
Bloom". This is a DVD of that celebration, and features a host of
celebrities and friends, including Jamie Farr, Tom Kennedy, Wink Martindale,
Peter Marshall, and many more. Plus, it includes a number of clips of
Eddie performing. And oh yeah, I'm in there too. So is
"Brad from Georgia" for Forum frequenters. This disc is
available through the IJBFC video library.
