The Comedy Showdown Between Real Life and the ProseBook - 2005
Truth, as any good reporter knows, is stranger than fiction. It's often funnier as well. Bob Fenster provides proof of that in his latest hilarious collection, Laugh Off. The author of the successful Duh! The Stupid History of the Human Race has a sharp eye for the funny side of the human condition. This time around Fenster creates an extremely entertaining showdown between real life and the funniest people in show business.Each Laugh Off chapter presents a collection of true-life anecdotes and professional comic material covering subjects such as funny money; on-the-job laughs; show biz glory; jokes for jocks; and doctors without pants, lawyers without briefs. The mix provides a plethora of funny stories, and readers get the chance to judge for themselves which scores higher on the Laugh Meter. Whichever way they lean, Laugh Off proves that life never lacks for hilarious material.Packed with hundreds of whimsical and witty stories, sayings, and observations, Laugh Off is arranged in a three-part format: part 1 presents the everyday vs. comic showdowns, part 2 explores comedy through the regular lives of executives, teachers, surfers, politicians, and others, and part 3 delivers bonus laughs for the humor-deprived. Together it all makes Laugh Off one big hoot!
