KIRKUS REVIEW

Anatomy of humor, technique of the pun, the insult, sex, family life, double entendre, nonsense, topical type of jokes with illustrations of famous people, stage and radio comedians. Chapter on how comedians build up their gags, where they find their sources. A how-to-do book on the ""hows"" of humor, with intent to help the reader improve his own brand. Funny is as funny does, with plenty of old standbyes, and suggestions of ways to rework them. Specialized sales, for raconteurs, after dinner speakers and those who strive to be the life of the party.
