The Funniest People Who Live Life: 250 Anecdotes
Print edition. This book contains 250 anecdotes, including these: 1) Like other satirists, Mort Sahl is angry and he wants other people to be angry. (Certainly we have enough things to be angry about, and getting angry about them may result in change.) He once advised, "You know what I want you to do? I want you to blow out the candles and curse the darkness." Mr. Sahl was a good friend of jazz musician Paul Desmond, a sax player. Mr. Sahl once gave Mr. Desmond a cigarette lighter inscribed, "To the sound from the fury." 2) Comedian Pat Henning once toured England, then many years and a toupee later, toured England again. The toupee did its job-theater managers told him that he was much funnier than his father had been.
