A very amuzing read!

The book contains many anecdotes (sometimes with a bit of tragedy) about many of america's top comics. If you want to know what comics encounter on the road, you will find this book very interesting and entertaining. I'm sure that these stories are just a tip of the iceberg.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid entertainment 11 Mar. 2010
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the perfect book to "taint" in your reading collection. If ever there were a book you'd like to taint-this one is it. Read it while taking care of personal business, sitting down, number two at home. You will learn something personal about the comedians. Each story from the road lasts just about as long as the average sitting down personal time anyway.

this would also be the perfect book to read while deploying to the Middle East. There is a lot of down time while waiting on flights or waiting on the next movement anywhere. I strongly recommend somebody in your military unit purchase this book. read about comedy behind the lines, read comedian war stories. Tuck this book some where in your ruck sack or between your legs. Pull it out for your next portable toilet/absentee ballot voting experience in a far away combat zone. You'll wish your business was as solid as this book. It is solid reading while you dream of a solid stool in a foreign land.

Perfect bathroom or combat zone reading material. If it came with a sealed plastic bag, I'd recommend reading this book while taking a long hot bath too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Read 15 Oct. 2011
By Thomas A. Brady - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a fun, interesting book to read. I will warn that I didn't find it to really be funny, if that's what you're looking for...but the road stories are very interesting. It was nice to hear insights from comics who have been doing it for decades. The only downside to the book is that not all of the stories are necessarily believable. They took stories down from essentially anyone and everyone, and that means you're going to get some bad mixed in with the good (i.e. Carolos Mencia). Also, the book gets a little cheesy at times, but if you can sift through those moments, there are some really cool stories to be read that will stick with you.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not...funny. 24 Aug. 2016

Somewhat interesting stories from the road, Neither funny, nor particularly interesting to a guy who really enjoys humor earthiness; although, that might just be subjective. Good luck.
5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for any fan of comedy. 4 May 2013
By S. Schott - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Stories of almost every kind: from embarrassing to grim, from laugh-out-loud funny to inspirational. Gives more than every reason to not go on the road as a traveling comic. And yet it makes you want to. I'm still figuring that out... Probably because for every horrible thing there is a key cool moment that only a few ever experience.
Ritch has done a great service documenting these stories and I hope he continues. Way to go, Ritch - and thanks!
5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Sick at Times, but VERY FUNNY! 10 Feb. 2011
By Jack Swersie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a comic myself and as one who worked with many of the talented comics upon whom this book focuses, I wonder why some of the people quoted would want their particular story made public. But that aside, I laughed quite often through this highly entertaining and hilarious book. I very much recommend this to anyone interested in the wild road all of us comics travelled while working our way up in a crazy business. Nice work, Mark and Ritch! FIVE STARS! If I could give it SIX, I would! I absolutely loved it.
