Comedy by the Numbers: The 169 Secrets of Humor and Popularity [Englisch] [Taschenbuch]
Eric Hoffman (Herausgeber), Gary Rudoren (Herausgeber)
Erscheinungstermin: 19. April 2007
This book is perfect for people who are funny and for those who aren’t funny (thus it is marketable to 100 percent of the population). As we all know, true creativity comes from simple formulas and the memorization of data. This new bible makes the secrets of comedy accessible, not only to those funny few among us, but also to those who might not have the ability or talent to be funny. One no longer need worry about originality — just find the right comedy number and apply as needed… and then you’re on your way to POPULARITYVILLE!(c) “Comedy by the Numbers” is a NEARLY comprehensive list of all comedy characters, bits, scenarios, sketches, skits, shtick, and much more. (We say “nearly” because we want to leave room for Volume 2.) Included are special hints, tips, and unboring comedy history. “Comedy””by the Numbers” is the brainchild of Prof. Eric Hoffman (Mr. Show) and Dr. Gary Rudoren (Annoyance Theatre) — AND features loads of comedy fun facts that you can memorize and use to impress people at parties!

I don’t do this thing 26. Juni 2008

I don’t do book reviews, I don’t do surveys, I’m really lazy. But, for this book? For this book, I will take three minutes to write my first ever book review. It will be short. Ready? This is the funniest book I have ever read in my entire life. Sure, it could just be a crazy coincidence that the humor of the authors is the exact humor I like, but I think that anyone will find this book funny. I read the book over the course of a month so as to savor it, and I read 5 pages a night, and I laughed every single night, and 3/4ths of the nights I laughed till I had tears in my eyes. I’m cynical and not humored easily. But this book is incredibly funny.
