By Jon Macks. Wit and humor—History and criticism. To James Carville, who came up with the idea for this book, and to Mary Matalin, for her words of encouragement throughout this process. To all the writers at The Tonight Show and Hollywood Squares who show the world every day what funny really is.

To my new baseball team, the Cobras. To Josh, my personal trainer, who in two years has turned a pound weakling into a pound weakling. This book has one aim—to teach you how to be funny in everyday life. Historically the male book buyer is the hardest to entice. Unless the book has a lot of pictures and a centerfold.

One thing to remember as you begin your journey to funny: A lot of this book is repetitive. A lot of the advice from the pros is repetitive. This is not because I get paid by the word. But these techniques and advice will not work if you have the unfunny gene.

And we all know people like that. They are marching to the beat of a different drummer and the drummer is Pete Best. By the way, I used Pete Best to make a point—outdated references fail in the world of humor.

Always use a fresh topical reference. But I digress. A classic example—Russian president Vladimir Putin. Or Joe Piscopo. So if you are a comedically-genetically-deformed person, return this book and get your money back. There are three ways in life to become popular: be rich, be beautiful, or be funny.

Everyone likes being around witty, entertaining people who can make them laugh. Sheer physical bulk can prevent the humiliation of being given a wedgie by a gang of cretins. So can a sense of humor. A quick wit and the ability to get the leader of the cretins or the Head Heather to laugh can turn a tense high school confrontation into a fun-filled bonding situation.

Or, you can just give them your lunch money and run. Face it, the life of a sales clerk is not easy. So who are these vessels of failed dreams going to be more responsive to: an angry trailer-park mom in curlers beating her kids upside the head in aisle 7 of K-mart while demanding to know where to find the size 44 polyester stretch pants, or you, someone who can make them laugh? George Burns, funny, lived to be one hundred. Milton Berle, funny, lived to be ninety-three.

James Dean, not funny, dead at age twenty-four. I rest my case. Maybe to be funny, you need to be smart. You certainly need to be well read, able to connect seemingly unconnected events and pull topical references out and use them at the drop of a hat. Upload Sign In Join. Home Books Pop Culture.
