LEE LORENZ ( Former Cartoon Editor of The New Yorker )
" Roy Delgado is much too modest. This collection includes not one but, by my count, 85 funny things that happened on the way to THE NEW YORKER. Original, amusing and for the aspiring cartoonist, inspirational. "
SAM GROSS ( Renowned New Yorker Cartoonist ) says: " Anyone who knows Roy Delgado ( his work ) knows he's a slam dunk, Roy Delgado is the CHICAGO CUBS of MAGAZINE CARTOONING. "
NORMAN HOTZ ( Cartoon Editor of Reader's Digest )
" Since receiving Roy Delgado's " A Funny Thing Happened on the way to The New Yorker ", I've been mumbling ' I love the misses ' a few times a day. I hope she never finds out I was talking about Roy's attempts at The New Yorker ". The relationship between words and images can be a wonderful thing. When that relationship is brought together by the wit of Roy's pen, it is an extraordinary ( funny ) thing. "
GENE PERRET ( Bob Hope's chief gagwriter for 24 years, 3-Time Emmy-Award winner, has written and produced numerous situation comedies incl . Carol Burnett Show, Laugh- In, Three's Company, Tim Conway Show Etc., Etc. ) says: " Any book that has at least one laugh on every page is worth reading. Roy Delgado's ' A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to The New Yorker ' certainly has a laugh per page. I just wish it had more pages. Wonderful cartoon art, terrific humorous observations, and an inspiring tale of how Roy Delgado continues to wend his way to The New Yorker . "
PHYLLIS DILLER on GENE PERRET " Gene Perret is the world's top authority on comedy writing, thinking, and presentation. "
CHARLES PRESTON ( Cartoon Editor of The Wall Street Journal )
" A very amusing collection. Lots of laughs for everyone . "
RON GOULART ( World-renowned comics historian, author of 20 books on the history of comics, science-fiction and mystery author of over 180 books ) says: " Very funny . . Roy Delgado is the nation's funniest signpainter/cartoonist. "
BILL KEOUGH ( Editor of The GAG RECAP, The 50 year old International Trade Journal for Professional Cartoonists and Gagwriters ) says: " This is a great book . . It doesn't seem possible that The New Yorker rejected all these cartoons . . the next time they rewrite the dictionary, they should include Roy Delgado's name in their definitions of ' rejection ' and ' hilarious '.
