Jonathan Winters was an American comedian, actor, broadcaster, TV presenter, artist and author

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, and won a talent competition which led to a job as a DJ where his comedy gradually took over the show. He was a constant sufferer from nervous breakdowns and bi-polar disorder, which contributed to his approach as a pioneer of improvisational stand-up comedy, with 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, all on the Verve label - '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 them recorded in front of a 'live' audience. It naturally includes many of the routines which made him famous on TV. For those unfamiliar with his work, it's a great introduction to a highly individual entertainer, and for those revisiting his work from those times, it's a feast of comedy very much of its era, but which laid the groundwork for later performers
