Jonathan Winters was an American comedian, actor, broadcaster, TV presenter, artist, and author who received eight Grammy nominations for Best Comedy Album during his career. He had a troubled childhood and developed his comedy persona as a response to his emotional traumas. Winning a talent competition led to a job as a DJ…where his comedy gradually took over the show. He suffered from bi-polar disorder, which contributed to his approach as a pioneer of improvisational stand-up comedy. He had a gift for impressions and mimicry, developing a range of characters that he used in his act. As he said himself, "I was fighting for the fact that you could be funny without telling jokes."

This 3-CD set comprises the complete contents of his first five albums: The Wonderful World of Jonathan Winters; Down To Earth; Jonathan Winters In Concert: Here's Jonathan; Another Day, Another World; and Humor Seen Through the Eyes of Jonathan Winters. All of these were recorded in front of a live audience, and include many of the routines that made him famous.

For those unfamiliar with his work, this is a great introduction to a unique entertainer. For those revisiting his work from this period, it's a feast of comedy very much of its era, which laid the groundwork for later performers
