about

"Ward Anderson flays open the perceived rock star glamour of stand-up comedy to show us how it really is."--Aisha Tyler

Falling in love is like stand-up comedy. You have to be crazy to do it. . .


Spence is a stand-up comedian whose claim to fame is a one-time appearance on The Late Late Show. Eight years ago. Since then, he''s been living on the road, working in clubs like The Comedy Crib or The Funny Farm or The Laff Shack--if he''s lucky. More often than not, his agent lands him gigs in country western bars. On a good night, he gets free drinks; on a bad night, he offends the audience with dirty jokes. Spence''s ex-wife thinks he should find a nice girl and settle down. His ex-wife''s husband thinks he should stop having his mail sent to their house. What does Spence think? That trying to have a relationship on the road is no laughing matter. Especially when he meets Sam. . .

She''s smart, she''s beautiful, and she''s Canadian--but she''s not putting up with his schtick. Sam wants Spence to drop the jokes and be himself, which is hard for a man who''s funny for a living. But the closer they get, the more successful Spence becomes. Can a stand-up comic live happily ever after with the girl of his dreams. . .without it ending in a punchline?

"I''ll Be Here All Week does more than offer a window into the life of a stand-up comic. Any reader would feel like they are actually on that stage, living the life and hoping that they''ll get out alive. Underneath it all is a love story that is sweet and funny." --Ophira Eisenberg, standup comic and author of Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy
