Most joke books are made up of anecdotes, including dialogue, and long, involved stories that have one thing in common – they are old-fashioned. Modem humor must be fast, short, and to-the-point. The kind that today’s top comedians use so successfully in their monologues-and 2,000 New Laughs for Speakers provides you with excellent ammunition for delivering this kind of penetrating, up-to-date wit.
Written by a master of the one-liner, this collection of sharp, quick jokes offers topicality and originality for those who like to punctuate their talks, conversation, or presentations with a light touch of humor. Arranged in alphabetical categories for easy reference these belly-laughs cover dozens of topi from Advertising to Income Tax, Race Relations, and World Peace. Useful for speakers, salesmen, and comedians, among others, 2,000 New Laughs for Speakers is also great for just reading enjoyment.
