American writer Samuel Clemens, better known by his pen name Mark Twain has given us some literary gems with Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn and his travel adventures in 19th-century Europe and to Australia and New Zealand. In How to Tell a Story and Other Essays, Twain discusses the telling of stories, rather than providing more stories.
The Fran Lebowitz Reader brings together in one volume, with a new preface, two best sellers, Metropolitan Life and Social Studies, by an "important humorist in the classic tradition" (The New York Times Book Review) who is "the natural successor to Dorothy Parker" (British Vogue). In "elegant, finely honed prose" (The Washington Post Book World), Lebowitz limns the vicissitudes of contemporary urban life - its fads, trends, crazes, morals, and fashions. By turns ironic, facetious, deadpan, sarcastic, wry, wisecracking, and waggish, she is always wickedly entertaining.
"Wonderful in her own voice."
>American is the story of one of the most influential comedians of the modern era. Even though Bill Hicks died over 16 years ago, his reputation has continued to grow.

This recording is a lasting record of his life, based on hundreds of interviews across America, as told by the people who knew him best.
From Lewis Black, the uproarious and perpetually apoplectic New York Times best-selling author and Daily Show regular, comes a ferociously funny book about his least favorite holiday, Christmas.
"Seemed a little forced (though he warns you)"
When accountant Ben Weaver awakens after an erotic dream, he encounters a wife who is unwilling, uninterested, and who once again has a headache.

"I just need love!"
Humorist Will Rogers, known as The Cowboy Philosopher, serves up political satire 1900s style in his notes on the Paris Peace Conference and the formation of the League of Nations following World War I. Rogers-isms is as pointed and dry as any contemporary political commentary. Referring to the Conference as "the Peace Feast" Rogers says "…I don't want to see the world grow up in ignorance on this historical subject."
A guy walks into a bar.From here, the story could take many turns. A guy walks into a bar and meets the love of his life. A guy walks into a bar and finds no one else is there. When this guy is David Sedaris, the possibilities are endless, but the result is always the same: he will both delight you with twists of humour and intelligence and leave you deeply moved. In Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, Sedaris remembers his father's dinnertime attire (shirtsleeves and underpants), his first colonoscopy (remarkably pleasant), and the time he considered buying the skeleton of a murdered Pygmy. The common thread? Sedaris masterfully turns each episode into a love story: how it feels to be in a relationship where one loves and is loved over many years, what it means to be part of a family, and how it's possible, through all of life's absurdities, to accept oneself. With Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, David Sedaris shows once again why he has been called 'A humorist par excellence, he can make Woody Allen appear ham-tongued, Oscar Wilde a drag' (Observer).

Yes, George Carlin is here with more of what he did better than any other comic: uproarious observations, laser-targeted crankiness, linguistic legerdemain, and inspired weirdness. ("If the shoe fits, get another just like it." "When you sneeze, all the numbers in your head go up by one.") Napalm & Silly Putty is just what his fans have been waiting for—another generous helping of notions, nonsense, assertions, assumptions, mockery, merriment, silliness, sarcasm, and, to be sure, plenty of disturbing references and toxic alienation.
Grammy Winner for Best Spoken Comedy AlbumPerformed by George Carlin himself, and filled with thoughts, musings, questions, lists, beliefs, curiosities, monologues, assertions, assumptions, and other verbal ordeals, Brain Droppings is infectiously funny.
New! Don't miss our AudibleComedy combo, featuring original humor from standups Greg Proops and Steve Marmel.
Beloved movie and television stars Bud Abbott and Lou Costello made their name on the radio, and the resulting long-running radio show preserved a rich vaudeville tradition and sensational comedy sketches. The sarcasm of Abbott's stern straight man is the perfect comedic compliment to the muffled screams of Costello's blustery "baaaad boy."
"Great retakes on entertaining the troops!"
