About Art Linkletter
For over sixty years, Linkletter has lifted our spirits. This Emmy Award winner has performed in such popular television and radio shows as House Party, People Are Funny, and Kids Say the Darndest Things (currently airing Friday nights on CBS-TV with Bill Cosby) based on his best-selling book of the same title. A true master of the podium, this recipient of ten honorary doctorate degrees has inspired thousands of audiences during his prolific speaking career.

Art has won 2 EMMY awards and received 4 EMMY nominations: he has received 1 GRAMMY AWARD; 10 honorary doctorate degrees; and has also received other awards, honors, and recognitions too numerous to list. It should be noted however, that among these honors, the one in which he takes particular pride is - Grandfather of the Year.

Kids Say the Darndest Things was one of the top 14 best sellers in American publishing history and #1 for two consecutive years. The latest among the 23 books Art has written is the recent best-seller "Old Age is Not for Sissies."
