I am an aspiring stand up with a few open mic gigs under my belt. The biggest problem any comic has is developing new material.
This is so-so at best, and the jokes that the author shares are really not good enough to try out on audiences.A rule of thumb for those interested in stand up; don't buy American books of this ilk. The differences in humour on either side...

I bought this book about a month ago. I'm a slow reader, real slow. Usually takes me 6 months to read a book, and this one is no exception. I'm kinda stuck in the step one, chapter one - how to structure a joke part.
To give myself a break from the hardship I bought myself a copy of Jimmy Carr's "The naked Jape", and my god what a read that is. I can't put it down.
Don't buy this book. Buy The Naked Jape instead. Now, there's a brilliant book.
