Publisher's Summary

So you want to be funny...or funnier?
Let's face it, funny people are fun people. The more funny you are, the more fun you have. And who doesn't want to have fun? Not just girls, but everybody. (Sorry Cyndi Lauper.)
Goes without saying, people love to be around funny fun people who know how to have a good time and make others laugh. Why?


Laughter is the best medicine in the world that can make worries go away.
Laughter is the ultimate euphoric feeling that can lift the human spirit.
Laughter is the positive viral effect that can contagiously spread happiness.
Laughter is the lubricant that can ease tensions and solve problems.
Laughter is the universal glue that can unite people to all come together.
Simply put, if you can make people laugh, they'll love you for it! That can open many doors for you in relationships, jobs, and even getting out of trouble. :)
We are constantly told you're either born with a funny bone or not. After all, being funny is utilizing your creativity with your own view of the world of what's widely accepted notion of the truth, or challenging those beliefs disguised in humor. It's all a personalized creative-involved endeavor; it's not like there is a technical step-by-step blueprint to follow into the working madness of the mind of the funniest man in the world, unlike fixing a car, right?
Not so fast grasshopper! Comedy is more formulaic than you may think (i.e., buildup, anticipation, tension, and release). There are structural elements to guide the creative process to being funny. Most people who are funny already have some forms of subconscious structures they follow without realizing, to generate jokes and come up with their materials, after using them for so long. It's called "a sense of humor&q

How to be funny made easy!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, very concise and with helpful examples.

What other book might you compare Instant Humor: How to Be Funny Instantly! to and why?

There isn't any book I would compare it to. It's great on its own.

What about The INSTANT-Series’s performance did you like?

Straight to the point and written in an understandable and fun way.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Not sure.

Any additional comments?

<br/>This was an interesting audio series. The author is correct by saying that people tend to gravitate towards those who have a sense of humor. This audio tape is not about how to become a stand-up comedian, although some of it may apply. It is more about adding humor to the most upsetting situations or breaking the ice in conversations. The number one rule in being funny is to always make fun of yourself. Being funny, makes someone more approachable and likeable. Everyone wants to be charming and funny but instead end up being ridiculous and silly. The author has helped me understand what a good sense of humor means and how to avoid common mistakes.<br/> He talked about being yourself and finding your own brand of humor, knowing your audience and what will make them laugh. He encourages us to listen, watch, and be in situations where we can be funny and help us get inspired to be funnier and practice. Most important parts of humor per the author is length of routine and timing. He gives us some type of activities to participate in to become funnier. If an attempt was made to add humor to a situation does not work, then turn it around and make fun of yourself. I will try some of these tips when meeting my friends next time. <br/>

don't buy it

I got about halfway through it. it's hokey and very contrived. a book that tries to teach you how to be humorous should be humorous that you think? based on other books I've been through it does touch on some good principles but it does such a shoddy job of elaborating or demonstrating
