Only joking : what's so funny about making people laugh? by Jimmy Carr( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A seriously funny, up-close look at joking matters--from the social origins of laughter, to the art and craft of humor, to why we can never remember the punch line--featuring over 300 jokes. Comedian Jimmy Carr and comedy writer Greeves take an in-depth look at where humor comes from and how it works, through exploring its purest form: the joke. Surveying across national, ethnic, and gender divides, they begin with the mechanism of laughter--how it happens and why even infants do it--then delve into the power of the punch line, exploring the basics of all jokes, from the use of shock and surprise to advanced stand-up techniques such as the "pull-back/reveal." Carr and Greeves go on to explore taboo humor, jokes that bomb, and the psychology of finding something funny.--From publisher description

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Having performed live to over 1.2m people, the UK's hardest working comedian Jimmy Carr, is back with his brand new stand-up DVD. Star of hit TV shows 8 Out of 10 Cats and 10 O'clock Live, Jimmy is well known for his slick one liners and non-stop gags, but his acerbic wit and fast-paced comedy style are at their brilliant best when he has the stage to himself. Packed with over 100 minutes of brand new material, including too-rude-for-TV jokes, hilarious heckling, and even better put-downs, Jimmy pushes the boundaries of comedy and delivers a spectacular show."--From container
