This was a bit of a mixed bag, but a look at the names involved in this collaborated effort should be all you need to know about whether this book belongs on your bookshelf. The weak chapters are more than outweighed by the strong. Yes, some of the contributions are less than stellar, but others more than make up for that with their side-splitting humor. Recommended.

I think I picked this up at a dollar store a million years ago. Some comedy routines done for this particular charity effort...and they're not even all that great.

I found this in my sister's house one night and read it, just a bunch of stand-up comedy from the old benefit special.
