    Useful tips and techniques to be a real funny guy

    Don’t let the title fool you – this book was not written by a 8-year old. Chapter 1 begins with extolling the virtues of being a funny person. Conversations go over smoother, you are more attractive to others, life overall is more enjoyable and brings people together in a more friendly atmosphere of work and play. Of course, humor is a matter of perception so Chapter 2 talks about how to be perceived as funny by others. There is an ‘art’ to being funny – waiting for the right moment for the punchline or your momma joke. It mentions that more people aren’t funny because they have inhibitions. Lower those inhibitions and the sky is the limit. You can’t go through life being too serious, a downer, or being to meticulous. So the tools are presented in easy-to-read paragraphs. Exaggerate your stories, be outrageous at times, make fun of yourself, be sarcastic. Each of these is covered in depth. What I really liked is the idea of creating your own, ‘funny character’ who you can pull out and present for others. You practice impressions of others, an accent, funny lines, and you deliver them when the time is right. The one-liners discussed in Chapter 6 is a extremely useful skill and I read that chapter several times. You wouldn’t think that science had much to do with being funny but this book really breaks down the science of it.
