Spanning more than 100 yearsworth of funny women in American, Funny Ladies offers witty words from the likes of Jane Fonda, Dorothy Parker, Phyllis Diller, and Bella Abzug. Readers will treasure the nearly 1,000 quotable quips in this delightful new book. Funny Ladies is like a hilarious gabfest with some of the wittiest women on the planet. This clever book offers amusing insights from a whole host of female humorists, writers, and comedians-from Erma Bombeck to Dolly Parton, from Roseanne to Marilyn Monroe-all of whom have a most entertaining attitude.Author Bill Adler divides these wild, wacky and often wise sayings into categories, that including advice, fame, life lessons, and sex. Together, they make for a comprehensive and unrivaled book of humor. As Goldie Hawn says: "Comedy breaks down walls. It opens up people. If you're good, you can fill up those openings with something positive. Maybe you can combat some of the ugliness in the world."
