Die Laughing is a humorously dark sci- fi adventure set in the 1950’s of flying saucers, communist paranoia, and live television.
Beamed aboard an alien spaceship, Las Vegas funny man Sam E. Lakeside is forced to participate in a plan to rob the earth of its oil. When the shape-shifting aliens – who take on the form of Trixie Norton, Ed Sullivan and others they’ve seen on TV – and their leader, a power-hungry mobster, murder Sam’s best friend and manager, Sam vows revenge.
He recruits a blacklisted comic book writer and the mobster's girlfriend, and drags them cross-country to thwart the aliens. Their journey takes them to New York City and The Steve Allen Show, where the key to the alien's conquest lies.
Sam, embroiled in an escalating tangle of violence, love, and lies, is forced to choose between what he wants most in the world -- to be a star -- or the planet's survival.
