Stand Up Book Camp

Ask me anything   This is a book dedicated to advice for stand up comedians, from stand up comedians. This is not boot camp. This is book camp.

I started this for my own selfish growth and after much feedback, decided to make a public page for it. This is my gift to comedians, who have given much to me over the years.

This is also a gift for fans of comedians to browse. Many things these comedians have written can be applied to normal professional work habits.

Please share with your friends. Especially if that friend publishes books professionally. I need to get famous soon.

(Just started this page. Will catch up on uploads soon. To read full book while you wait, friend me on fb: http://tinyurl.com/ce23wxu)
