Here are some books that were recommended to me by professional comics.
This list might be useful if you want to do stand up comedy or just thinking about it.
Or these books might simply help you to be funny in everyday conversations.
1. How to be funny -by Jon Macks
2. Born Standing Up -by Steve Martin
3. The Book on Hosting. How not to suck as an EMCEE -by Dan Rosenberg.
4. Comic Insights - The Art of Stand Up Comedy -by Franklyn Ajaye
I created an Amazon.com list of these books for your convenience.
