With the tense financial atmosphere, the insanity of the political season and the general stress of the upcoming holiday season, we figured what better time to talk about the Top Ten Comedy books.  These books have serious laugh out loud value, sure to turn people’s heads as you cackle on your commute or at the coffee shop.

10. I Am America (And So Can You) (Stephen Colbert)

9. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead (Tom Stoppard) [dark but brilliant]

8. I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell (Tucker Max) [despicable but hilarious]

7. A Confederacy of Dunces ( John Kennedy Toole)

6. Lamb (Christopher Moore)

5. Our Dumb Century (The Onion Collection)

4. The Far Side Gallery (Gary Larson)

3. Catch 22 (Joseph Heller)

2. The Princess Bride (William Goldman)

1. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (Douglas Adams)


  1. Sorry, but by far the funniest book ever is “The Baby in the Bag.” A tale of political correctness run a muck with pissed off dwarfs, a dolt of a writer, and a cast of characters to bizzare to believe…

    You didn’t include ‘The Porridge King’ in your list. A dreadful omission! And once which makes me question your motives and sense of humor. Frankly, dear sir, I’m appalled and rather itchy at the moment.
    I suggest you take a long gander at this free excerpt and rethink your preposterous proposition.

  3. What about The Bear Went Over the Mountain?

  4. Alexander says:

    I don’t mean to be a wet towel or anything but three men in a boat is definitely number #1
    name 1 book you have read that describes the demonosity of setting up a boat tent in such detail.
    really you should be appalled of yourselves

  5. I just read a little book that made me crack up. In between myths by Tom Marriot , it wasnt too big and riddled with some spelling mistakes ( i think the editor fell asleep in places) but the comedy was still gold.

  6. Right Ho Jeeves or The Mating season
