Mark Flanagan is the custodian of the estate of Marty Feldman (Young Frankenstein; Silent Movie; more) and the driving force behind LA's Largo, the theater that's been home to musicians and comedians for nearly 20 years. Flanny discusses finding Feldman's autobiography and having it published as-is (at the prompting of Python Eric Idle), Feldman's place in the British comedy pantheon, the importance of Marty's wife Lauretta, and his own personal unique relationship with artists and performers.
