Rob recommends Mr. Funny Pants
Michael Showalter (The State, Wet , Hot American Summer, The Baxter) has written a funny book. His particular brand of quirky, punny, smart-alec, off-balance humor is not for everyone though. Think of him as Dave Barry morphed with George Carlin. Mr. Funny Pants is a collection of memories, advice, reflections on modern life and writing books. Some of the topics (not really chapters, more like monologues) include Sandwiches, Even Gangbangers Get the Sniffles, and Excerpt from My Imaginary Interview with Charlie Rose. These are all after, of course, the Preface, the Post-Preface, Post-Post-Preface, Pre-Post-Post-Preface and End of Pre- and Post-Prefaces Preface. You get the picture.
