Publisher's Summary

Humor has been a mainstay of The New Yorker since the magazine's inception in 1925. Harold Ross, The New Yorker's founding editor, characterized his magazine as "a comic weekly", featuring the work of such writers as Dorothy Parker, James Thurber, S.J. Perelman, A.J. Liebling, and Ring Lardner, among the country's greatest literary humorists. The magazine's tradition continues, with the contributions of such writers and artists as Andrew Barlow, Noah Baumbach, Andy Borowitz, Christopher Buckley, Nancy Franklin, Steve Martin, Patricia Marx, David Owen, Paul Rudnick, Paul Simms, and Calvin Trillin, all of whom read selections from their own work.

Terrible

This was just awful and very disappointing. This is obviously the verbatim of an awards show and it would have been nice to have some of the boring introductions and awards left out. Each of the speakers actually read their jokes off a piece of paper. They didn't "deliver" the joke, literally read them. Listen to the sample before purchasing...but i would say skip this all together.
