Darrell Hammond made me laugh with his various impressions on "Saturday Night Live," but his autobiography is anything but funny. It kind of proves the old maxim that behind every clown is a man who is crying. Mr. Hammond's early life was anything but a three ring circus and his early demons have affected him throughout his life. The book ends on an up note, with Darrell putting his life together.
