Rich Hall is one of the many under-rated comedians from the 80s. From Not Neccessarily the News to Fridays to even Saturday Night Live, Rich Hall always carried with him his unique brand of insanity. Did I mention he also invented Sniglets and does a wicked Paul Harvey impression?

This parody of Self Help Books is a bona fide classic. Find it, read it, and let laughter heal, or at least help an old wound congeal.

Let's be clear: I love Rich Hall's stand up. Which is probably why this was such a disappointment. I tried reading it internally in his iconic tone...but even that didn't work. So I'm ditching this and sticking Otis Lee Crenshaw on TV instead.

Rich Hall gave me a copy of this when I worked with him a thousand years ago. He was shocked when he realized he had written a bathroom book. I love bathroom books
