In literally a matter of months, Steve went from not being able to even get a spot at comedy club open mikes to headlining major comedy venues and pursuing his comedy career in high paying corporate markets.
The comedy club scene had already crashed. There were (and still are) many more comedians than comedy club jobs available.
Still, Steve managed to perform often, develop a following and make more money in comedy part-time while he was still on active duty in the Navy than virtually all of the full time comedians in his area.

Fun, Laughter And Humor Live Here. This book is as effective as a happy puppy in a hospital, in bringing entertainment to Cheer-Up! un-well people. And enjoyable reading for folks on boring long air or ocean trips, or at home deep in comfy chairs, or happily lounging under big umbrellas on warm Caribbean beaches (Hawaii would be okay). There are enough funny, even hilarious, articles living in the first section of this parade to bring laughter to even the grumpiest old grouches. The second section encloses some thoughtful writings that arise from the inner beauty that lives in the hearts of good people. In the final section, read (If You Dare) my writings exploring the depths of After-death and Heaven, the Big Bang Theory vs. Creationism, the End-Of-Time and what may cause or succeed such events, and other unusual thinking so provocative it assuredly will initiate some heavy discussions.

Are We Having Fun Yet? ZIPPY is THE most original and greatest comic in mainstream press today. It’s art is fantastic; the writing sublime (and sometimes just plain stupid–but in a good way).

FUN-E-MAIL. The Internet has spawned many new industries and activities, but none more inane than the distribution of jokes. Each day, we are deluged with SPAM and occasionally buried in all that trash, we discover a giggle, or two. There is nothing new or novel about publishing joke books. This book is totally without design or order. After all, this is the way most of us live our lives. This might offend some, but I don’t care. Many of the jokes and some of the cartoons are frankly, somewhat trashy. Others are downright crude and I have no doubt that the prudes among us will be grossly offended. If you are sensitive to bathroom humor or blatantly sexual innuendoes, you may want to pass on this book. On the other hand, this book contains much useful and valuable information. Especially if you like to play trivia games. Some of the historical references are very enlightening and may make you the hit of a party.

• Manicotti Overboard
• Sinnamon Apple Muffins
• Miss American Thigh
• Jurassic Pork Roast
Poophemisms: Over 1737 Fun Ways To Talk About Taking A Poop. OK, maybe not, but this book is hilarious. It’s basically a dictionary of terms for pooping. It’s a little juvenile, but my friends and I always try to crack eachother up be saying things like, “I gotta go paint the porcelain”. Now I’ll be armed with whole slew of phrases. A lot of the stuff in here is very creative and, in my sense of humor, very funny.
Fun With Reid Fleming: World’s Toughest Milkman. I picked this up on a whim at my local library. This is some pretty funny and surreal stuff-what comics are supposed to be about. It has a style that harkens back to the early days of comic strips where there were less hardfast rules. Forget about Dilbert and Garfield and especially the wretched Sally Forth and try and find a copy of Reid Fleming.

Lots O’Riddles: Good Clean Fun for Everyone. From brain teasers to head-scratching riddles, Carrie Brown has made a good attempt at presenting riddles and jokes which are morally clean and normally simple enough for older children and adults to enjoy. In her book, “Lots O’ Riddles: Good Clean Fun for Everyone,” Brown has collected riddles that cover many topics and puts them together in light and readable arrangement. There are the funny, “What wears a coat in the winter and pants in the summer?” type of riddles, to the longer brain-teasing puzzles. One of the strengths of the book is the ease of finding jokes. There are 32 sections under which the riddles are assembled. For example, under the title, “Easter and Spring surprises,” the reader will find humorous pieces about Easter, bunny rabbits, Valentine’s day, and playing on hare/hair. In another section named; “Brainteasers and Mindstumpers,” Brown has pulled together various types of humorous conundrums.
Mathematical Fun, Games and Puzzles is an outstanding book that I have used in my classes for years and years. It has a wealth of material that is of a quality far above the usual compendiums of games that you usually see. Great games, challenges, tricks, etc. that you will love using with your students, and the range is from early grades on up to at least junior high and sometimes beyond.
Great stuff. While you’re at it, buy an extra copy or two for your colleagues; this is one book you’re going to love and use often. This entertaining Mathematical Fun, Games and Puzzles developed by a math teacher, uses puzzles and games to introduce the basic ideas and operations of arithmetic. Following the standard middle school curriculum, the book presents 418 problems and 120 illustrations that cover a wide range of topics: averages, fractions, decimals, percentages, powers, roots, and more. Puzzles range from easy to difficult.
Laugh Yourself Thin: Making Happiness, Fun, and Pleasure the Keys to Permanent Weight Loss argues a unique thesis. Laughter, its physician author proclaims, is the key to losing weight. Losing weight, she goes on to say, will not necessarily lead to happiness, but happiness does lead to weight loss. Offering an approach to weight loss that is grounded in sound medical research, her book shows readers how increasing joy and fun decreases stress and negative emotions—resulting in permanent thinness.
Laugh Yourself Thin covers the entire spectrum of weight loss, but pays closest attention to positive attitude and behavior in activity and eating. The first section discusses the relationship of thought and behavior to weight loss, the second deals with the intake of calories, and the third details issues in metabolism and activity. Enriched with healthy doses of funny, true stories, this revolutionary book proves that, when it comes to getting thin, laughter is the best medicine.
The 2012 Guide Book takes an absolutely hilarious look (tongue in cheek) at all the doomsday people, plots and situations associated with 2012 and basically turns them on their ears. I loved this book, it was extremely funny and as the author says “I don’t know if the end of the world is in 2012″ but you might as well just enjoy some good champagne until then – how can someone argue with that logic?
Bart Simpson is prince of pranks. No one is safe and everyone is fair game as the Prince of Pranks, Bart Simpson, unloads his bag of tricks on his unsuspecting friends and family. First, Springfield Elementary will never be the same when Bart replaces Seymour Skinner as principal. Then, things get out of hand and oversized when Bart gets his hands on Professor Frink’s newest invention, the Embigulator. Add in a new installment of Bart’s comic creation Angry Dad and a plot to make Ralph Wiggum the most feared kid on campus, and Bart Simpson, Prince of Pranks, will have you howling with laughter all the way to the Principal’s Office!
“It has never been easier to make a great living doing what you love. But to make it happen, first you need an EVIL PLAN. Everybody needs to get away from lousy bosses, from boring, dead-end jobs that they hate, and ACTUALLY start doing something they love, something that matters. Life is short.” -Hugh MacLeod
Freud once said that in order to be truly happy people need two things: the capacity to work and the capacity to love. Evil Plans is about being able to do both at the same time. The sometimes unfortunate side effect is that others will hate you for it. MacLeod’s insights are brash, wise, and often funny.
