I wish you could judge it by it's cover...,
This review is from: The Comic Toolbox: How to Be Funny Even If You're Not (Paperback)
I wish these books would be more specific in their title's. You get 'Comic toolbox', 'comedy writing' etc. all of them pretending to cover every comedic possibility. The truth is this book is a largely about old sitcoms and screenplays. Some of the additional 'tools'that you might use for stand-up etc are only given one paragraph and are only presented as ideas rather than giving a real grasp of how to use it. Interesting in places but a 'comic toolbox' it is not!
