Three men in a boat
To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis
Confederacy Of Dunces
Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Catch 22 always kills me
I laughed with One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
The ‘Wilt ‘ series by Tom Sharpe! Laugh out loud funny, especially the first 2 books, but not for those who are easily offended by bad language x
This is where I leave you
So funny – per usual, better than the movie
Red Dwarf – infinity welcomes careful drives and book 2 better than life
I can’t say I’ve LOLed non-stop, but anything by Terry Pratchett amuses me to no end. You can find his books on Library Genesis http://gen.lib.rus.ec/ Here you can find free downloadable Epubs or Pdfs.
Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened – by Allie Brosh.
You can read several of the illustrated essays here:
I loved Hyperbole….
I was looking her up just now to see if she’s written more and where she is and stuff. And (I don’t know how reliable this is but) the internet tells me that in 2013 her sister committed suicide and that’s largely why she stopped writing for a while. Also said that apparently some time after that she and her boyfriend broke up and he got both of the dogs.
So that’s all kinds of depressing. I wish I could find her and hug her.
@Missy ohhh me too
Any of the Serge Storms novels by Tim Dorsey.
I’m not sure it is the “funniest” but I laughed out loud several times throughout this book! The Tuesday Night Erotica Club
Jenny Lawson, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened
Also Jennifer Weiner’s books always make me laugh out loud!
Anything by David Sedaris or Carl Hiaasen.
Bachelor Brothers Bed and Breakfast by Bill Richardson. I read this several years ago and just guffawed. May have to pull it out and reread.
Cracked classics: trapped in transylvania.
Good Omens. Top of my list!
Jerome Klapka Jerome – Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing about the Dog): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/308

James Bibby – Ronan the Barbarian (couldn’t find online, sorry)
Another vote for Three Men in a Boat.
What’s relation between three men in a boat and To Say Nothing about the Dog?
@Sumaiya long name of the book. Three men travel in a boat and they have a dog with them.
In To Say Nothing of the Dog, the characters in that story encounter the characters from Three Men in a Boat briefly.
“What’s So Funny? My Hilarious Life” by Tim Conway
Anything in the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich
Foetal Attraction – Kathy Lette
Straight Man was funny — Richard Russo
A Walk in the Woods, by Bill Bryson
The Road to Little Dibbling is also very funny!
@Donna All his travel books are good. Such a wry sense of humor!
Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson. Seriously a MUST. Get the audiobook because it’s read by her and she’s incredibly funny.
Also if you enjoy crude humor, read anything by Chelsea Handler. Or Tucker Max. Disclaimer on him, though… Don’t read if you’re offended by things. He’s a douche but yeah, his stories are epic and very funny.
You Deserve a Drink by Mamrie Hart was great too
@Mick loooooove Mamrie!
I recommend Mamrie Hart as well. I listened to her second book, I’ve Got This Round. Definitely recommend it if you’re a fan of hers 🙂 I’d also recommend books by Jim Gaffigan, like Dad is Fat or Food: A Love Story.
I love doing audiobooks for comedic/funny books so I can get the full effect and voice inflections for certain jokes.
@Rebecca I didn’t know she had another book! Adding to my list!! We’ve definitely thought about doing the thing where you sit in the yard with a ‘you honk, we drink’ sign. I’m not on a busy after though… ?
@Mick yea, it came out earlier this year! Haha nice!
Hold Me Closer Necromancer by Lish McBride. Gave it (and its sequel) to a friend whose wife banned it from the bedroom because he kept laughing out loud and waking her up. Also has its own fabulous playlist: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/8041873-hold-me-closer-necromancer
Anything by David Sedaris on audio. His hysterical stories are even funnier when he reads them aloud. He is a master storyteller. His first and classic Me Talk Pretty One Day must be read first as it introduces David and his very quirky family to readers. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4137.Me_Talk_Pretty_One_Day
Tina Fey’s book
White girl problems and Psycho by Babe Walker
I remember reading this on a bus. Had to close it, because I was laughing out loud and people were staring!
Treasure Island!!! by Sara Levine
In a Sunburned Country, by Bill Bryson.
A Confederacy of Dunces is right up there too!
I am in the middle of this and was surprised how funny it is.
Sweet Potato Queens
The Boob Girls
Definitely anything David Sedaris. He’s great!
Idiot Girls Action Adventure Club by Laurie Notaro. Or really any of her books are funny.
The Rosie Project and What I was Doing While You Were Breeding
Something by Kurt Vonnegut
The Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich are funny as well.
A Year in the Merde had me laughing out loud in public!
THree Men In A Boat by Jerome K. JErome
THree Men In A Boat by Jerome K. JErome
Crazy in Alabama by Mark Childress
The book I am currently reading ‘This is going to hurt’ by Adam Kay ?
Bridget Jones by Helen Fielding is deffo worth a read.
Me Talk Pretty One Day https://www.amazon.com/Me-Talk-Pretty-One-Day/dp/0316776963
Ellen Degeneres’ ‘My Point…And I do Have One…’
The Spellman Files series
We did a couple days back
Jimmy Buffett’s books are laugh out loud funny!
Anything by Tom Robbins
The Sweet Potato Queen’s Book of Love. Laugh out loud, snort-laugh funny.
Murder with Peacocks by Donna Andrews
Lunatics by Dave Barry & Alan Zweibel
Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan.
Have you read An Abundance of Katherines? That one is pretty funny too.
No, I haven’t yet. I am so tempted to pick it up tonight. Thank you for the recommendation.
Skinny Dip. Haasiam
Let’s pretend this never happened. Furiously happy. Bossypants. Is everyone hanging out without me.
The ultimate hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy is by far the funniest book I’ve ever read. I love Douglas Adams humor. Buy the complete trilogy (5 books and one short story actually). There is an intro where he explains how he came up with the idea. It had me laughing out loud on the first couple pages.
