Kind of Reader

I think that most everyone would enjoy this book for the sole reason that its written by a comedian and there are quite a few good laughs in it. But if i had to narrow it down to a type of person id say it would gravitate towards humorous people who like to laugh.

Why Did I Like It?

I personally love to watch and listen to comedy and even write it. I think that the mutual interest of comedy between me and the writer is what made this book interesting to read. -One of my favorite books yet.
