In this engaging and disarmingly frank book, comic Jay Sankey spills the beans, explaining not only how to write and perform stand-up comedy, but how to improve and perfect your work. Much more than a how-to manual Zen and the Art of Stand-Up Comedy is the most detailed and comprehensive book on the subject to date.
"Jay Sankey offers aspiring stand-up comics a career's worth of wisdom in Zen and the Art of Stand-Up Comedy. His advice [is] both thought provoking and practical." -- Publishers Weekly
