Good question. The two that immediately come to mind are Space Force by Jeremy Robinson and Seriously Messed Up by Luke Young.
Gone to Pot by Jennifer Craig
The Panther In My Kitchen by Brian Blessed. I laughed like a drain!
My family and other animals by Gerald Durrell

The miss fortune books by Jana Deleon are funny

Toss up of any James Lileks “regrettable foods” book and Harvard Lampoon’s “Bored of the Rings” (read the last one in high school and laughed my ass off)
Stephanie Plumb books by Janet Evanovich.
These books always make me laugh. The grandma cracks me up!
I found those books to hilarious. I loved Grandma.
It’s a genre I find positively scary! There’s such a fine line between funny and awful. Humour is so subjective.

Hap and Leonard books are great
Esther Friesners’ Chicks series.
Anything by PG Wodehouse.
@Bronwyn oh yes, totally!
Joy In The Morning is a particular fave but really anything he ever wrote.
Never get tired of him, @Tim. Have just bought the complete dvd Jeeves and Wooster set. Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry are superb. I love the Blanding series too.
Me too! My gateway drug was “Mike” (published by Armada in 2 separate paperbacks Mike at Wrykyn and Mike and Psmith) when I was about 10 or 11
I didn’t read any Wodehouse until adulthood. Can imagine Psmith (the P is silent ?) being a bit of a hero to a young lad. Really enjoyed those books too. Have you read any biographies about him? A very interesting person and really nice guy by all accounts.
Yes, I read several many years ago. Richard Usborne’s Wodehouse At Work is also a great critical appreciation if you don’t know it.
I’m not sure, Tim, I know I’ve read more than one, but the only one I’ve written down is ‘PG Wodehouse. A Portrait of a Master’ by David A Jasen. I’ll look out for it.
Yes, I read the Jasen one ages ago. There’s a more recent one by Robert Crumb (I think) that I keep meaning to get hold of.
Cats in the Coffee by Joyce Fussey
Skintight by Carl Hiaasen
Adrian Mole series by Sue Townsend, I still laugh at them?
