Amusing stories of "the road" from many, many comedians. Some funny, a couple poignant, an interesting read. ( )
  bookwormteri | Feb 7, 2011 |
This book was one of my few ventures into the world of non-fiction, so I did not really have many expectations. However, I did expect that a book about the stories comedians tell among themselves would be funny, and, indeed, it was. On the other hand, I, as a guy, even get tired of the penis and vagina type jokes that make up the bulk of this book. There is only so much I want to hear about blowjobs, hookers, and waitresses. I mean, don't get me wrong, it is funny, but it is entirely unbelievable. How much action do you honestly think a comedian gets? If it is a lot, then this world is a sad, sad place. Moreover, yes, that does go for the female comics as well. Anyway, I suppose that these are comedians' stories, so they should be taken with a grain of salt, and if you take this book with a grain of salt, then it is most enjoyable - a worthy time killer or toilet book!
