As a comedian who also writes a lot about comedy, I've read big piles of stuff by comedians, about comedians, and about how to become a comedian. Here are my very best picks – the books I return to over and over again, and the books that helped me understand everything I know about jokes and joking. The Serious Guide To Joke Writing' By Sally Holloway. You might think it's pretentious to call something the Comedy Bible, but Judy Carter's tome is so thorough and step-by-step that it's totally warranted. I love how she takes you day-by day through writing your first stand-up set as well as through writing spec script.

On October 11, 2013, he appeared on the late-night CBS television series The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. The appearance was taped on October 10 and featured an appearance by actress Rashida Jones. He was a semifinalist on Season 7 of the NBC series Last Comic Standing.

Readers who have both the ambition and the desire to get started on a career in comedy will find advice, information, and direction in this unusual new book. The authors--both successful standup comics--discuss the different forms of comedy and help readers determine which style of humor matches their personalities.

Super accessible seems to be in the vein for people who haven't performed but have always wanted to.

This book was designed to be abused. With a thick cover and sturdy metal rings binding the thick paper inside, it's definitely a book that was meant to be read over and over again.

If there's someone in your life that's considered doing anything remotely related to stand up, this is an overview of the industry, what to expect when looking for gigs, etc.

If you're starting out it's an excellent resource. If you've been doing it for a while, it's a nice perspective on things you may or may not already know.
Filled with anecdotal evidence and quotes from big name professionals, it's a fun read.

"The Comedy Bible" by Brian McKim & Traci Skene accurately and briefly describes The Creative Process, the emotions that comedic artists go through and the business aspects in a brief and accurate way. Page 131 Red Skelton's Freddie the Freeloader was only SOMETIMES a silent clown; he did verbal jokes in MOST of his sketches. I think there's one other error in the book and it's just as trivial. Great book for a comedian to give their parents and great to give a just-starting-out or working-up-the-nerve-for-their-first-set beginners. My favorite part was Page 99 Ajaye quote, quoting other comics. It was an adventure hunting for errors in this book and finding none. (Twice I had a false alarm: So-called "one-liners" are sometimes 2 or 3 sentences. I reread it and they had said "usually" so they're not wrong.)

Brian McKim & Traci Skene have created a brilliant how to book about the world of standup comedy. Chocked full of pictures, realistically informative how to's, historical perspective, clever writing, and spot on reporting, THE COMEDY BIBLE has something for everyone. From professional to amateur to wannabe comic, this is a must have book about an art form that is much more complex than many people are aware of. Written by two professional "working" standup comedians, the reader will understand a world that is made up of many different kinds of comedy forms, meanings, and disciplines. Thank you...that's my time...this book will be here all week (and forever)...try the veal!

I have read this book cover to cover twice now and am very impressed with the total package. Being a beginning comic myself, I learned a lot having devoured almost every stand up book available, so I know
what is out there.Brian Mckim and Traci Skene also own the informative comedy internet sight SHECKY
have given newbies like me a gift. This husband and wife team not only talks the talk, but they also walk the walk they are successful professional stand-up comedians for over two decades each. Comedy is an art, and it is refreshing that there is a minimum of dogma to hamper ones creative juices flowing. From my experience, it wouldn't hurt for more experienced comedians to buy this book and get rid of possible bad habits.
This is obviously a labor of love. Thank you Brian Mckim and Tracy Skene!

This was an easy, enjoyable read for fans as well as aspiring comics. Fun trivia and anecdotes from pros, plus a preview of what's in store for lunatics with the guts to give stand-up a try.

Anybody could write a book like this and, contrary to the title - it will not help the aspiring comedian in the slightest. Please - if you are considering a career in comedy - spend your money on Judy Carter's bible - a robust and legitimate piece of work. ....unless of course you need to read drivel like: "Punch Line: Position this at the end of your joke."

This is probably the worst book I have ever purchased. The (cruel) joke is on me! and anyone else foolish enough to purchase this so-called book.
this book is more about the history of comics and deferent style of comedy their are. this is not a guide to becoming a comic.
