Books for Your Funny Bone

What makes comedians so unique is that they don't just distantly observe the spectacle that is human life---they highlight the absurdity of our existence, but they do so playfully. Ergo, we are able to laugh at ourselves and the world around us without getting caught up in the uneasiness that comes with examining ourselves and the world too closely. 

This summer, indulge in a chuckle at Willis Library. We have comedic memoirs and audiobooks, funny parodies and novels, as well as psychological insights on the nature of humor itself. Because having fun isn't hard when you've got a library card!

"Like a welcome summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air and you." - Langston Hughes
