    The Believer magazine presents a compendium of advice from producers, writers, and actors of The Daily Show, Saturday Night Live, Parks and Recreation, Late Show with David Letterman, The Hangover, and The Colbert Report, along with other musicians, cartoonists, New Yorker writers, and those similarly unqualified to offer guidance.

    I don't know anything about the first book or The Believer or any kind of prior knowledge that might have made this book funny. This book was a waste of time and money.
    It has a funny title and funny names associated with it, but it is not funny.
    The book is set up in a Q&A format. Unfunny questions are asked and unfunny answers are given.

    Recorded in front of 16,000 fans at London's O2, the most thrilling comedian of his generation delivers his first live performance for two years. With 80 minutes of blistering, boundary-pushing stand-up, featuring Brand's first hand account of hosting the MTV Video Music Awards, his rise to Hollywood fame, sexual notoriety and the media storm around 'Sachsgate'.

    The Ricky Gervais Show on Xfm is where Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant first met Karl Pilkington. The trio, who have been talking drivel ever since, later went on to create one of the most downloaded podcasts in history.

    Beyond memoir, this guidebook offers practical advice on everything from "How to Be the Black Friend" to "How to Be the (Next) Black President" to "How to Celebrate Black History Month". This is a humorous, intelligent, and audacious guide that challenges and satirizes the so-called experts, purists, and racists who purport to speak for all black people. With honest storytelling and biting wit, Baratunde plots a path not just to blackness, but one open to anyone interested in simply "how to be".

    Teddy says: "Funny yet insightful!"
    "Interesting, but not necessarily entertaining."

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. I expected to be enlightened. Instead it was just one stereotype after another.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Be Black?

    I liked the trip to Africa and his reaction.


    Have you listened to any of Baratunde Thurston’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first book from him that I have listened too.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Season 1 was the most downloaded podcast in history. Season 2 blasted the boundaries of blather. And now, it's The Ricky Gervais Show: The Complete Third Season. Pay one price, and you'll get all six episodes from Season 3, full of the latest ravings, rants, and ramblings from Ricky, Steve, and Karl.

    All of the Ricky Gervais Show Trilogy makes me laugh.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ricky's laugh


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes! It is nice that it is in episodes that you can pause between and get chores done, but when getting ready for work, I listen to the complete podcast.


    Any additional comments?

    episodes 2,3,4 are very funny. I don't think you have to be English to enjoy it. I am in the US and I found it very funny. episode 5, not so much.

    The record-breaking, chart-topping comedy phenomenon returns for a fifth season - all four episodes are here as a single download. Ricky Gervais, of course, is the award-winning co-creator and star of The Office (upon which the current NBC hit series is based) and HBO's Extras. Steve Merchant, who also stars in Extras, is his long-time creative partner. Karl is a pile of protoplasm that mimics the functions of a human being.

    This is the least funny in the Ricky Gervias show series. I have laughed repeatedly at the trilogy, but this one, just wasn't as funny.
