So funny it's actually kind of depressing. B.J. Novak announced himself as a major literary talent with this one, and his stuff for young kids is just as good.
Totally unexpected, fresh, and painfully funny.
In a crowded field of memoirs written by comedians, this one's the gold standard. Tina Fey is even funnier on the page than she is on the screen.
This is my go-to book. I've read it five times. Steve Martin's memoirs of his time as a stand-up comic are a gift to anyone who's interested in what it takes to be funny.
Another favorite. Brings you back to a time when life was better... and funnier.
