The University of Chicago Press is offering a free e-book edition of the book Tim & Tom: An American Comedy in Black and White, written by onetime comedy duo Tim Reid and Tom Dreesen with Ron Rapoport.

Rapaport says Reid and Dreesen, who met in Harvey in 1968 while in their early 20s, were "the first and only black and white comedy team in the history of show business."

In an excerpt from the book that ran in the Reader in 2008, the pair describe a challenging 1973 booking at Club Harlem in Atlantic City, one of the premier clubs on the chitlin' circuit.
