    Step by Step to Stand-Up Comedy, written by Greg Dean, is a comprehensive guide for people who are funny, want to be funnier, or have dreams of being a stand-up comedian. This first-of-its-kind audiobook demystifies the craft of comedy by breaking it down to the fundamental skills used by professional funny people. Dean lays out these skills in simple-to-understand lessons that are easy to practice and master.

    I imagine that the techniques described in this book are good, and they are thoroughly explained. His process for writing jokes and the ins-and-outs of honing material is actually very insightful. But... the way the author reads this book will make you lose any confidence that you are being taught by a competent funnyman. I know he is just reading text, but he more than anyone (as the author) knows how the jokes are intended to be delivered. I understand that the jokes in this book are meant to demonstrate the process, and it does a good enough job at that. But the already unfunny jokes are made incredibly cheesey by his deliveries, and when he uses voices for the characters' dialogue or lines... I just cringe. Every time. They are annoying and completely wrong for the context. I highly suggest you read this book rather than listen to the audiobook to salvage any humor that the author might have. But all-in-all, very good advice in all aspects. Read the book, and the purpose will maintain its credibility.
