We need an escape from the bad news out there, so today I’m sharing some books I thought were very funny!
Have a Nice Day is a play, but this version is a live script-reading in New York from 2018. In addition to the headliners, the cast is full of stars, including Rachel Dratch and Darrell Hammond. Funny and moving, with a feel-good finish, it’s a quick listen and is currently available on Amazon Audible.
Pure entertainment and a great escape into the frivolous upper crust world of a lovable good chap who gets himself into the wildest predicaments. As in all of Wodehouse’s books, everyone counts on the ever-wise Jeeves for a solution and he does not disappoint.
Arthur Less is turning 50 and he’s at the edge of a crisis: his writing career has stalled and his former younger lover, Freddy Pelu, is getting married. To guarantee he’ll be out of the country on the day of the wedding, Less accepts a string of unusual writerly engagements that take him around the world. His goal? Forget Freddy and rework the novel his publisher has taken a pass on.
Great story about being different and making it anyway. Through a rambling, often irreverent and always hilarious “where is this story going?” narration, with plenty of colorful vocabulary, Lawson tells you about her childhood, depression, anxiety and illness, her family, early jobs, marriage, motherhood and how she became a blogger and writer.
I also found a list from npr.org of 100 funny books. Some of these are on their list too and you can check out the rest in this linked article: August 20, 2019 article: “We Did It For The LOLs: 100 Favorite Funny Books” by Petra Mayer
