GRAMMY AWARD WINNER FOR BEST SPOKEN WORD COMEDY RECORDING!

When Jonathan Winters, the elder statesman of surreal improvisational comedy, leaves a message at the tone the result is comic genius. It seems that Jonathan's peripatetic buddy Jim Smith is quite the elusive fellow. Regardless of season or time of day, Jonathan can never reach Mr. Smith by phone...but that's a stroke of luck for the fans of Winters' brand of inventive off-the-cuff antics. CRANK CALLS captures for posterity actual phone messages left by Winters on Smith's answering machine. The result is uninhibited, unscripted, and uniquely Winters.
