about

A Lobotomy Patient's guide to joke writing, performing, and selling. An entertaining, easy to follow text and workbook that offers a comprehensive step by step formula for creating jokes as well as performing a stand-up routine.

Class room tested exercises for defining your stage character. Are you an observer (Jerry Seinfeld), aggressor (Don Rickles), victim (Rodney Dangerfield), or alien (Steven Wright).

Afraid of that blank piece of paper? This is the only "how to" joke writing book to deal with writer's block. Freud said "wit comes from the subconscious". This book has exercises designed to tap into your subconscious to get your wit flowing. It teaches you how to create a "Wit-Gap" and mine those comedy gems on a regular basis.

Other topics covered:

How to format an act
How to get paid work
How to sell your jokes to others like I did (sold jokes to Joan Rivers and Rodney Dangerfield)
Where else you can sell your jokes
How to put together a press package
What to expect as a stand-up comic
How to deal with hecklers - the collection of battle tested heckler lines and suggestions for their use are worth the price of the book alone!

Plus lots of funny anecdotes from a professional writer, performer, and teacher who appeared in over 300 nightclubs and colleges, and opened for Gary Shandling, Jim Carey, and Bob Saget.

Based on over 20 years experience as a performer, writer, and teacher.

So you don't forget, buy it now before midnight. If you do forget, buy it after midnight.

And as a special bonus, we are including two great recipes, including a chicken matza ball recipe you can sing!
