Overview

Hell Gig Enlightening the Road Comic has been hailed as one of the most useful and important books about standup comedy ever to hit the shelves. Re-edited and updated, the pathos, understanding, and wisdom are a must for any person considering heading out on the road as a comedian. Both hilarious and thought provoking, Hell Gig has given thousands of new and veteran comedians alike a jolt of endlessly engaging realism about the business of standup comedy and it's stumbling blocks. Comedy bookers have commented in the past that they wouldn't work a comedian who hadn't been empower by its wisdom. Veteran road dogs read Hell Gig again and again. Very few books this funny bring so much important and heartfelt advice, pathos, and intelligent advice to the table. The stories are tremendous allegories that, along with the laughs, can steer a lifetime of professional behavior. It's that good!
