The shortest route from set-up to payoff is, geometrically speaking, the one-liner. And there’s no finer practitioner of this oft-overlooked art than Dwight York. One of the most prolific and masterful comics working the stage today, York is known for his combination of short witticisms (channeling a bit of Steven Wright) and quick shocks (perhaps like an over-caffeinated Doug Stanhope), a deluge of which are shared in his latest book, More from the Vile File. Whether you’re looking to crib some notes for cocktail parties or get your humor in bite-sized pieces, More from the Vile File will have you all stocked up in no time… just practice your transition from, “Wait…?” to “Oh!” to “Oh dear…,” because the mighty Dwight York one-liner waits for no man, woman, or sheep.
