    One of a kind book

    Its about time somebody mapped humor out and made it this simple. I am amazed at how everything in this book is so true. After reading a few chapters and doing a few exercises in it, I was amazed that every time I found myself laughing over the next few weeks it followed the format within the book perfectly. Three weeks later I noticed others were laughing at me all the time. Then I realized I was already implementing its techniques without even realizing it. This is a must read for anyone who has ever laugh and everyone who never has!

    Carter's book breaks stand up down well.

    Judy Carter's book is easy to read. I loved how she gave examples from plenty of pros so that you can see that she is not just making this stuff up. She analyzed and came up with a great approach to doing comedy.

    Your best bet

    I have never done stand-up comedy before but in June I participated in a full-time acting course and stand-up was part of it. My teacher suggested we buy Judy Carter's book so I did it. It was the best thing I could do. This book is awesome. Informative, funny, explanatory, funny, interestin, funny... and even funny!!! If you are starting out as a comic or comedy writer, it is a must-have. It will improve your: writing performing skills sense of humor and make you appreciate other stand-ups. Great book.

    Hilariously Brilliant

    Absolutely the best book. Not only does it make you laugh, it makes you feel better about your routine. It's like a friendly pat on the back, which is exactly what a lot of starting comedians need...just that little extra assurance and advice.
