Anything by Bill Bryson.
David Sedaris always a go to! His most recent, Calypso is out now
I was actually just looking at Me Talk Pretty Someday on Indigo 🙂
The audiobook is as fun as well!
@Marie, that’s what I was about to suggest!
@Alex– are you reading Calypso now? I have the audio book and I’m about half way in. Not sure if I like it yet and I’m a huge Sedaris fan.
@Kristin to be honest, I found it to be his “darkest” maybe because of the topics he was touching on
@Alex agreed. Which is maybe why I don’t like it as much?
@Kristin yeah not my favorite
Anything by Carl Hiaasen!
I would second this recommend, too
Anansi Boys,By Neil Gaiman. I loved it.
Confederacy of Dunces
Space Opera, by Catherynne M. Valente. Very much like Hitchhiker’s Guide only shorter. A fun read where Earth must enter an intergalactic contest similar to Eurovision to determine its survival.
Sorry couldn’t resist.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy !
Second that! It’s a work of genius
Born a crime, by Trevor Noah,
Bill Bryson books
A Walk in the Woods.
Anything by Christopher Christopher @Moore
Shit My Dad Says
The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
I’m starting that next month for my book club!
Oooh! You are in for a treat! The book is ridiculously hilarious!
My sister in law suggested it because she had heard the same thing. Then the next month we are doing “Ready Player One” so we will have a couple good sci-fi reads back to back ?
@Tim oh Wow!! Ready Player One is on my immediate TBR!
Well if you end up reading it in August let me know! We can chat about it as we read.
Abdolutely! Reading has currently taken a slump due to lack of time. The first book I plan to pick up is Salem’s Lot.
Yes!!! I’m about to start Pet Semetary, I am just finishing my current book and that is next ?
Aha! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it!
I’m reading John Dies at the End now and it’s very funny and a pretty easy read. However it’s pretty dirty so I’m sure it’s not for everyone.
Terry Pratchett! Try Mort
Donald Westlake’s Bank Shot, or any of his other Dortmunder series. I also loved Drowned Hopes. Truly hilarious crime capers.
Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
If he’s not particularly religious: Mark Cain’s Circles of Hell series. Short and absolutely hilarious
Portnoy’s Complaint – Philip Roth
The know it all by aj jacobs
A Man called ove
A Man Called Ove
World according to garp
Dave Barry books
Fiction – Carl Hiaasen. He’s quite funny. Nonfiction – Blue Latitudes by Tony Horwitz.
I would second anything by Carl Hiassen
The Boat Who Wouldn’t Float by Farley Mowatt
The first of the Andy Carpenter books by David Rosenfeldt
I love this series!
Stuart Woods~ Stone Barrington series
Any Kinky Friedman…
OMG! I’d forgotten about Kinky! So good!
Lisa Lutz’s Spellman Series, a family of private detectives who spy on each other.
Food: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan.
Hiaaesen is a hoot, as is Christopher Moore. Moore is laugh out loud
I agree 100%
I thought The Martian by Andy Weir has a lot of great humor.
Dave Barry’s books.
Almost any Terry Pratchett book. I’d recommend Going Postal, the whole City Nightwatch series by him…
And Mort–loved that so much.
@Hannah Yesss! Definitely agree! Thief of Time and Hogfather were phenomenal!!
Fool- Christopher Moore.
Don’t Point That Thing At Me
Still Life with Woodpecker
Callahan’s Crosstime Saloon by Spider Robinson…Enslaved by Ducks by Bob Tarte…Round Ireland With a Fridge by Tony Hawks…
Any book by P. G. Wodehouse…?

Anything written by David Sedaris
Agree, Sedaris is funny and insightful. My husband enjoyed Jim Gaffigan’s Dad is Fat.
In A Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson.
THree Men In A Boat by Jerome K. JErome
A Walk in the Woods, by Bill Bryson
Anything by david sedaris! He is the funniest!
A whole stack of the classic hilarious Patrick McManus. Guy humor at its best. https://www.amazon.com/Horse-My-Garage-Other-Stories/dp/1626361177/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1529157223&sr=8-5&keywords=patrick+mcmanus+box+set&dpID=51%252BNZs7FnxL&preST=_SY291_BO1%2C204%2C203%2C200_QL40_&dpSrc=srch
Bill Bryson is always good for a laugh. A Walk in the Woods or A Brief History of Nearly Everything are good places to start.
Fools to the Left, Jokers to the Right by Michael Smerconish.
