Avon Books, 1996 - American wit and humor. - 239 pages
Ten years ago, Bob Zmuda brought together Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, Robin Williams, and dozens of other great comics to stand up for a good cause: America's homeless people. The result, the first Comic Relief, was a huge success - a meeting of maniac minds that has inspired six more equally successful "televents" and other related fundraising efforts. And now the Mother of All Comedy Shows has given birth to the Mother of All Comedy Books.
The best, most killer comedy routines from the first ten years of Comic Relief are gathered together here in one hysterical volume. You'll find Billy, Whoopi, and Robin, of course - also such favorites as Garry Shandling, Dennis Miller, and Bill Maher; Paula Poundstone, Elayne Boosler, and Rita Rudner; Louie Anderson, Steven Wright, Bob Saget, Sinbad, and many, many others...a stellar lineup of stand-up.
