Audible Editor Reviews

In As it Should Be, deadpan stand-up Margaret Smith bares her soul on the altar of comedy, as she riffs on work, play, family, her favorite underwear, and her taste in men ("basically I date guys I think I can take"). Part confession, part declaration of war, Smith’s routine terrorizes the mundane world of strip malls and tawdry houses, reminding listeners of everyday life’s absurd drudgery. To witness Smith’s biting banter is to be slain by laughter, as listeners won’t be able to tell whether they’re laughing at the stand-up on stage or themselves.

Publisher's Summary

Margaret Smith, winner of the Ninth Annual American Comedy award for Best Stand-Up Comic, Female, in 1994, makes dysfunctional family life the backbone of her act. "Deadpan delivery", "blank-faced", and "funny" sums up her dark humor. She is one child out of six in a demented, dysfunctional Middle American family. But she contends that all families are dysfunctional in some way or another.

Smith left home for college and needed money. Since she was from Chicago, she applied, successfully, for a job at Second City, which would pay half of her school tuition. That gig lasted three-and-a-half years and included writing many of the group's sketches. Eventually, she gravitated to New York City, where she began her stand-up career.
