In a hilarious look at real life on the comedy circuit, some of America's most famous comics share their own stories of life on the road, gigs gone wrong, and unexpected, zany moments, with contributions by Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Mike Myers, Bill Maher, Joan Rivers, Jeff Foxworthy, and others. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
Life in the stand-up comic trenches can be a harrowing experience: the quest for laughs in America's bars and dimly lit comedy clubs teems with unintended pratfalls and bizarre misadventures. These stories come to riotous life in I KILLED, a compilation of anecdotes and war-stories by comedians including superstars Chris Rock and Jay Leno as well as lesser comics like George Westerholm and Mishna Wolff. Dropping acid before a show, razzing a Klansman, opening for Nirvana, Jay Leno's kinky encounter with a groupie--I KILLED teems with side-splitting tales from the strange world of professional jokers.
