Publisher's Summary

Kelsey Grammer portrays J. Edgar Hoover in this irreverent and hilarious musical spoof about one of the most powerful men in 20th century America. As head of the FBI, Hoover was privy to the secrets in the lives of many men. Now you learn about his secret love live, his need for personal privacy, and his obsession with knowing the private affairs of others. If you weren't so busy laughing, the show might upset you.

Funny because it's true

funny because it's true.."So do you think this McCarthy fellow is going to be around awhile."
"Listen to mr. Hoover, I don't hitch my wagon to just any starter but he's got a real fire in his belly for the commies and the degenerate fellow Travelers.
"Great! if it's one thing, I'll be called by my party name."
"I'm sorry, can I get you another drink, Mary!."
