Book Description

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 is a stand-up comic, writer, and cartoonist. For more then twenty years he has performed around the world and has made numerous television appearances. He lives in Toronto.


"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
