Background Information

Bob Mills, Comedy Writer & Author

A native of San Francisco, Bob Mills served in the Navy after high school, graduating from San Francisco State University in 1962 and the University of California Hastings Law in 1965.  He practiced in Palo Alto, CA for ten years before moving to Hollywood to write for television.

He worked on the "Dinah Shore Show" and the "Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts" before joining Bob Hope as a staff writer  in 1977. He traveled the world with Hope for the next seventeen years.

From 1992 to 1996, he co-wrote a daily topical humor column for the Los Angeles Times called  Laugh Lines.

In 1999, he became an enrichment lecturer for Crystal Cruises and for the next five years sailed aboard the Crystal Symphony and Harmony, as well as the Diamond, Pacific and Island Princesses and the Celebrity Mercury performing shows based on his experiences with Hope.  He is currently booking cruise lectures.

In 2009, his book "The Laugh Makers: A Behind-the-Scenes Tribute to Bob Hope’s Incredible Gag Writers" was published by Bear Manor Media and was named one of Leonard Maltin’s Top 20 Year-End Picks.  Available on Amazon.com.  

An unabridged audio version read by the author is available on Audible.com. 

In 1973, he married his wife, Shelley, with whom he lives in Studio City, California.
