This is an anecdotal recap of DICK GAUTIER’s life and career which he prefers to call a ‘AUTOBIOGMEMOIRELLA’ (he coined the weird word). With his offbeat sense of humor and imaginative use of language he recounts his early years as a standup comedian and then on to his

debut on Broadway in “BYE BYE BIRDIE” for which he won nominations for the “TONY AWARD” and “MOST PROMISING ACTOR”. He guides you through his personal life, his wives, children, and doesn’t omit the lean years when he toiled as a self-described ‘lousy waiter’ and was reduced to demonstrating pogo sticks at Macy’s merely to survive.  His time spent in front of the TV and movie cameras provides insights into his stint as ‘HYMIE’ in “GET SMART”, to “ROBIN HOOD” in “WHEN THINGS WERE ROTTEN”, over 500 TV guest shots, feature films and in five TV series.He's also done numerous voiceovers for animated films, written novels, plays, movies, painted, caricatured, and is the published author of fourteen books on the subject of art. We feel that you’ll enjoy this fun filled, intriguing glimpse into the life of DICK GAUTIER, a true, as he likes to call himself, “RENAISSANCE DILETTANTE”.

Somebody is viciously murdering the standup comics that appear at “The Adlibbers”, one of the many small comedy clubs that dot the landscape of West Hollywood.

 “NO LAUGHING MATTER” follows two seasoned homicide detectives, Sam Church and Elia Munoz, as they attempt to unravel this puzzling series of bizarre killings. The victims are all young, up-and-coming performers whose mutilated bodies are found with slyly humorous, sick and twisted notes accompanying their bloody remains.  The author, DICK GAUTIER, draws upon his early years as a standup comedian in order to infuse this intriguingly dark suspense novel with an unmistakable air of authenticity.   

We think you’ll get hooked on the unusual plot, and fascinated by the richly drawn, peculiar characters that people its pages.     

“BOBBY STARRETT”: THE UNAUTHORIZED MEMOIR OF THE SHOW BUSINESS LEGEND.

is an off-the-wall, quirky, satirical jab at the spate of current ‘unauthorized celebrity biographies’. It follows the life

and loves and lies of arguably the universally famous, highly controversial and most remarkably talented, all round entertainer Bobby Starrett.

Here, in all its clumsily phrased and poorly written glory, is the amusing, hysterical, revealing, fascinating story of a dirt poor immigrant lad who cheats, lies, steals and commits any immoral or depraved act that you can possibly conjure up in order to succeed in the lofty, noble, lucrative, glitzy, cut-throat, tawdry world of show business.

 

DICK GAUTIER, writing under the pseudonym of Don Spumey (which is in itself an anagram of ‘pseudonym’) has pulled out all the stops on his creatively comedic mind and created this unforgettable fictitious super-duper star, and produced a one-of-kind, screwy, free-wheeling book with at least one guaranteed laugh on each page.
