Set in the Bronx during the Depression, Enter Laughing chronicles the over-protective parents, the two too many girlfriends, and paycheck commensurate with his acting talent, of a young man who grew up to become comedy legend Carl Reiner. Adapted by Joe Stein, book writer of Fiddler on the Roof, from Reiner's memoir.
