For me, the answer is simple. It's a political satire e-book by a writer for the huffpost, Steven Clifford. The book is called Fools And Knaves: The True Story Of My Historic Presidential Campaign It's only 99 cents! Check it out!

I really like anything by Sophie Kinsella and Cecilia Ahern. I love the chick lit genre. I just recently read And the Winner Is by Erin Brady and laughed out loud while reading that book.

About a year ago I was reading Tim Dorsey's Nuclear Jellyfish: A Novel (Serge Storms) in a coffee shop and started laughing so hard that the waitress thought I was having a seizure and came running over to throw down the Heimlich manuever. I was pretty well behaved after that until I was at the same place recklessly drinking ginger ale while reading Sijin Belle's Big Chicken with predictable results and I'm not sure if they will let back into the Coyote Cafe.

Jon Stewart's Naked Pictures of Famous People...I just love it! I've read it a few times and even used parts of the book in my theatre classes for monologues and things like that.

UpHill, by Jody Overend. An over-the-top chicklit romantic comedy for the over 50 set.
Grungia, by Jan Drabek. A feast of silliness and ambassadorship in an emerging African nation.

The Supply Chain Mong this story tickled me throughout. All i'd say is its not particularly well written in places, but a laugh out loud story of somebody who hates his job and messes everything up daily.

The funniest book I've read in a long time is a new book "The 5 Greatest Spankings of All Time". See link below. I laughed out loud on nearly every page.

I don't know if anyone has recommended this yet, it's actually from 1995 by Children's Author, Gary Paulsen. I found the 1st half of the book belly laughing funny the second half was a bit more philosophical, but overall a great read. I given it, as a gift, many times and have always gotten profuse thanks for it. Basically it's about learning to run the Iditerod from scratch. Give it a try esp if you like dogs.

Tyler Stoddard Smith's Whore Stories: A Revealing History of the World's Oldest Profession is part Monty Python, part Eminent Victorians, all hilarious. Also, found out that James Lipton from Behind the Actor's Studio was once a French pimp. This book is weird, informative and funny as sh*t.

Me Talk Pretty Someday by David Sedaris

Posted on Jul 21, 2012 10:29:21 AM PDT
Naked by David Sedaris.

There were two chapters in particular. One was called "Tics", in which he describes how hideous and out-of-touch he was in his high-school days, complete with his faux-afro, Coke-bottle glasses, platform shoes (that he could never stay on, btw), and gold jewellery that was so heavy it was constantly throwing him off the platform shoes.

The other was called "Kin," about a book of erotica his sister had found. When he got to the part about being repulsed by the book (he was just entering his teens), not because of the content and deplorable acts the characters did with one another, but because there were so many typos, I thought I was going to cough up a lung. It's brilliantly-written and my favourite of his books.

David Sedaris is pretty hilarious. Also Ben Peller's "To Live" series...he makes life in L.A. laugh out loud funny. Also, "Down and Out in Paris and London" by George Orwell is always good for a laugh.

I didn't realise George Orwell wrote comedy. Or do you mean it's just so ridiculous it's funny?

Posted on Jul 21, 2012 10:55:08 AM PDT
It's about being broke, and as the old saying goes, Orwell uses laughter to cut trouble down to a size where you can look at it. Speaking of which, Dan Jenkins is pretty darn hilarious.

Thank you C. Moore and Reader/Wrestler. In this long "discussion" thread, this is the first time I've seen two people actually conversing.

Not an all-time classic, but I just read a 50 Shades parody called 50 Shades of Brown. I thought it was very funny. Anyone who read the original and thought it was really lame would enjoy this one, I think.

Read Dear Diary I'm Wasted by Alexander Strenger. It's about this kid at SUNY BINGHAMTON who used to get wasted and write degrading journal entries about all the girls he took home from the bar, and he did it while he was still drunk. This book had me laughing so hard I nearly peed on myself. Dear Diary I'm Wasted Dear Diary I'm Wasted

I just read a new book called Stung Hard and it was a riot. The author apparently skewers the Duggar family from 19 kids and Counting and buy, he sure nails them to the wall. There's practically a laugh on every page. Give it a try!
