An invaluable guide on how to "lighten up" from a distinguished pro who has provided laughs for JAY LENO, BILLY CRYSTAL, STEVE MARTIN, ROBIN WILLIAMS, BRAD GARRETT, WHOOPI GOLDBERG, AND MANY MORE. Who hasn't wished for the perfect withering comeback line, a clever tension-breaking quip, or a winning flirtatious remark? Being funny is hard work and not everyone is a natural. How to Be Funny is a witty guide that teaches readers precisely how to be funnier in everyday life. It's a must-read for anyone who has to speak in public, be engaging and funny at work or at play, or who hopes to one day go out on a date. Jon Macks, a comedy writer for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the Academy Awards, the Emmy Awards, Hollywood Squares, and the nation's top comedians, politicians, and corporate leaders, knows his funny business. Here he demystifies the process of making people laugh, breaks down the basic building blocks and types of humor -- which include self-deprecation, misdirection, deadpan delivery, sarcasm, and "the reverse" -- and reveals the best approaches to use in common situations. How to Be Funny features helpful (and hilarious) tips and anecdotes from the comic legends Mack's worked with -- including Jay Leno, Arsenio Hall, Gilbert Gottfried, Billy Crystal, Rita Rudner, Dave Barry, and Carrie Fisher -- in his eleven years as one of the nation's top television writers. Whether the goal is to give a memorable public address or deliver a killer line with friends, How to Be Funny is a charming, instructive, and practical read.

When fifty-eight-year-old Gabe Kaplan, perhaps best known for his performance in the title role of the popular seventies sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter, got an e-mail asking him to participate in a show called Celebrity Boxing, he couldn't resist the urge to have a little fun with the request. After exchanging a series of ludicrous e-mails with the show's talent coordinator in a mock-serious attempt at negotiation, Gabe was inspired to start a prank e-mail campaign. The result is this hilarious collection of correspondence. See how people react to Gabe Kaplan's absurd claims that he: * has slept with more women than Wilt Chamberlain * is an expert at Cossack dancing * thinks he's smart enough to become a member of MENSA * wants his image on a U.S. postage stamp * would like NASA to send him into orbit with Jimmy Carter and Dr. J * and many more! Witty, irreverent, and ridiculously comical, Gabe's e-mails and the responses he receives are sure to entertain anyone with a taste for the surreal.

Wilson "Carl" Carlisle needs to deal enough drugs to pay-off a huge back tax bill. Dutch Immigration, The DEA, an angry Russian, a gang of Turks, The Hells Angels, and even the IRS are determined that he not succeed. He had been a small time dealer when he played tennis at LSU, and he had worked his way through U Miami Law as an errand boy for criminal lawyers, bondsmen, and drug traffickers. Would these experiences give him enough of an edge to survive the array of criminals and law enforcement aligned against him? "Confessions Of a Trial Lawyer" is actually two books in one, meant to be read together. But they can be read separately as two complete stories. "Opening Statement" and "Closing Argument." As the titles imply, the second is more confronational. They can be read in any order. Read two books for the price of one.
