Anthony "Tony Palma" Palmeri, popular barber and humorist in Pittston, a small Pennsylvania coal-mining town, began telling jokes as he began losing hair in his twenties. With his dynamic wit, Tony built up a repertoire as "The Bald Barber," which mushroomed into a stand-up-comedian routine over a 40-year career. With the humor of Robin Williams and the gentleness of Bing Crosby, there was no frightened child whom Tony could not charm into a barber chair, and no sad person he could not make laugh. Nurses, doctors, and townsfolk agreed, "He's better than a medicine."
In Tales from the Barber Shop, his daughter, Sister Josephine Palmeri, a teaching nun in Morristown, NJ, shares Tony's 40 years of stories, along with inspirational gems from the life of her late Dad, a heartwarming story of down-to-earth holiness and humor.
