Stand-up comedy is coming back according to Fox, though his hints for performance (act out the punch line. . . start a joke with ""I bumped into my friend Joe the other day. . ."") don't reflect any advancements in the state of the art. Likewise most of the humor is as old as borscht. Still even if you only buy one joke book a year Fox is a best bet--he's anything but stingy and his rapid-fire delivery will leave you feeling like the man who just became the father of triplets. . . unable to believe your census.
