The Joke


The Joke


$16.36


2m / Dramatic Comedy / Unit set It’s 1965 and two comedians, "Steady Eddie" & "Doug the Mug," knock ‘em dead every night in the Catskills. Punchlines and cheap shots fly — on stage and off — as Doug and Ed battle for the spotlight over a decade, pushing each other to the cusp of a new direction of stand up comedy. With their personal and professional lives uncovered at center stage, Eddie and Doug must find a way to laugh it off while staying at the top of their game. Sam Marks’ The Joke takes a look at the friendship and the rivalry between two comic partners during the golden years of the Borscht Belt. "A tasty two-hander by Sam Marks…A comedy team working the Catskills in the 1960s and ’70s, getting few laughs while undergoing all the stresses of a doomed marriage…And just as in a marriage in which one half of the couple changes while the other stays the same, the relationship deteriorates. Allusions to a woman and to the historical context as the ’60s give way to the ’70s are tantalizing but not overdone; the focus stays on the two men.." – Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times

Johnny Ryan s transgressive masterpiece Prison Pit has been the talk of alt-comicscircles for the past year since its debut in the summer of 2009. But beforePrison Pit, Ryan garnered a considerable following via his one-man humoranthology (which doubled as a one-man War Against Political Correctness)Angry Youth Comix. Take a Joke collects many of the best stories from this inimitableseries as well as many strips created for the wildly-popular Vice magazine, to which Ryan has contributed for years.Unlike Ryan s previous collections, which focused on very short stories, Takea Joke spotlights several of the artist s longest humor pieces to date, notably: Graveyard Goofs, in which Ryan s hapless antiheroes Sinus O Gynus andLoady McGee exhume the corpse of the recently-deceased Santa Claus as partof a Top Secret experiment, fantasize an orgy with a collection of anthropomorphiccondiment bottles (resulting in an unwanted pregnancy), and end up inHell; Boobs Pooter s Jokepocalypse, starring a coprophiliac version of Godzillawho destroys the world with hilarious jokes and crazy pranks; and The World sFunniest Joke, a 24-page masterpiece that makes The Aristocrats look like a NoraEphron film.All this plus Cheeseburger Chase, Omletta DuPont, and The Day The NewYorker Came to Town

The Artist's Joke


The Artist’s Joke


$20.09


Ever since Freud’s "Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious" appeared in 1905, humor both light and dark has frequently surfaced as a subversive, troubling, or liberating element in art. "The Artist’s Joke" surveys the rich and diverse uses of humor by avant-garde and contemporary artists. The texts collected in this new reader from London’s Whitechapel Gallery examine what Andre Breton called the "lightning bolt" of the unsettlingly comic, as seen in the anarchic wordplay of Duchamp, Picasso, the Dadaists, and Surrealists; Pop’s fetish for kitsch and the comic strip; Bruce Nauman’s sinister clowns and twisted puns; Richard Prince’s joke paintings; art ambushed by feminist wit, from the Dadaism of Hannah Hoch in the 1920s to the politicized conceptualism of Jenny Holzer and Barbara Kruger in the 1980s; the serenely uncanny in Mike Kelley’s installations and the risibly grotesque in Paul McCarthy’s; and the strangely comic scenarios of artists as various as Maurizio Cattelan, Andrea Fraser, Raymond Pettibon, and David Shrigley. Artists’ writings are accompanied and contextualized by the work of critics and thinkers including Freud, Bergson, Helene Cixous, Slavoj Zizek, Jorg Heiser, Jo Anna Isaak, and Ralph Rugoff. Artists Surveyed: Leonora Carrington, Maurizio Cattelan, Marcel Duchamp, Marlene Dumas, Fischli & Weiss, Andrea Fraser, Guerilla Girls, Hannah Hoch, Mike Kelley, Martin Kippenberger, Barbara Kruger, Sarah Lucas, Paul McCarthy, Bruce Nauman, Claes Oldenberg, Raymond Pettibon, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso, Richard Prince, Arnulf Rainer, Ad Reinhardt, Ed Ruscha, Carolee Schneemann, David Shrigley, Robert Smithson, Annikia Strom, Kara Walker, and Andy Warhol Writers: HugoBall, Henri Bergson, Andre Breton, Helene Cixous, Sigmund Freud, Jorg Heiser, Dave Hickey, Jo Anna Isaak, Ralph Rugoff, Peter Schjeldahl, Sheena Wagstaff, Hamza Walker, and Slavoj Zizek "Copublished with Whitechapel Art Gallery, London"

Bob! Bob! called a woman in loud tones, as she came to the kitchen door, her arms, with the sleeves rolled up to her elbows, covered with flour. “Bob, I want you to go to the store for me. I need some more lard for this pie-crust.” There was no answer, and the woman looked across the big yard at one side of the cottage. “Where can that boy be?” Mrs. Henderson murmured. “I saw him here a little while ago. He’s never around when I want him. I shouldn’t be surprised but what he was planning some joke. Oh, dear! I wish he was more steady, and wasn’t always up to some mischief. Still, he’s a good boy at heart, and perhaps he’ll grow better when he gets older.” She rubbed her left cheek with the back of her hand, leaving a big patch of flour under one eye. Then she called once more. “Bob! Bob Henderson! Where are you? I want you to go to the store.” “Here I am, mother. Were you calling me?” asked a boy, emer-ging from behind a big apple tree.

One horse. Two strangers who each desperately need it. Rachel sits alone in her house and watches the city around her slowly disintegrates, depopulated from a deadly plague. Like most good Mormons, she has a year’s supply of food and clothing in her basement, saved for “hard times.” She had prepared to survive a disaster, never imaging the worst disaster of all might be to survive-alone. And then a horse, a bay mare, trots into her yard and into her heart. But someone else needs the horse as well, a ten-year old Navajo boy. Johnny Calico, his adopted family now all dead, lives by his wits, eating the food left in empty houses, and hiding from the Church officials who want to consolidate the population into a smaller area. He sees the horse as a lifeline, a means to return to his relatives on the reservation in Northern Arizona. Even as Rachel feeds and brushes the horse, finding purpose in her life for the first time since the Death, Johnny plots to steal it. First published in Realms of Fantasy (2001), “Harden Times” was later reprinted in Irreantum. It also won an award in the 1999 Utah Arts Council Contest, where the judge, author Ron Carlson, praised the story for its “clear and forceful” writing, and for the characters, “both close to the end of their ropes, tentative, fearful, yet both refusing to let go of hope.”Susan J. Kroupa, who has lived in Utah and on the Hopi and Navajo reservations, says the idea for the story came from several sources. “I lost a horse, a bay mare, that I dearly loved,” she said in a recent interview. “I continued to dream about the horse for a long time after her death, and I realized that she had become a symbol to me of loss, and somehow, conversely, of hope. And then, some years later, my soon-to-be husband and I were house-hunting in Utah. Almost every home the realtor showed us had a storeroom filled with food as part of the family’s preparation for a disaster. We started to joke that builders in Utah couldn’t get a permit to const

Laughter the Best Medicine: Those Lovable Pets


$8.69


People are funny, but so are the animals we love-and our day-to-day relationships with them can be even more entertaining. Dogs and cats obviously rule the comedic roost, but parrots, parakeets, and other talking birds are often an endless source of amusement as well. Even our connection to bunnies, hamsters, and the occasional white rat can evoke a good laugh. The 500-plus pet anecdotes, cartoons, and quotes in “Laughter Is The Best Medicine: Those Lovable Pets” have been collected from more than eight decades’ worth of “Reader’s Digest” magazines and are guaranteed to cheer up your day. You’ll meet the woman whose dog trembled at the “Beware of Dog” sign in their front yard until she told him, “Relax It’s you “; the vet whose advice to a woman whose cat had swallowed lots of unpopped popcorn was, “first, keep him out of the sun”; the mother-in-law who concealed her way-too-plump piglet’s weight loss pills in ice cream; and much more. Our furry or fine feathered friends not only warm our hearts but also amuse us (and our joke writers, too) with their antics-one reason, no doubt, the market for this book is so vast: At the minimum, 40 percent of American households own at least one pet.

Maybe You Should Move Those Away From You

I met Cathy online years earlier, and although we have not yet stood face to face, we share a special bond. As her birthday drew near, I installed webcam software on a small laptop, called her, and gave her a virtual tour of my home and yard. I then allowed her to watch me at her leisure throughout the remainder of the day as I went about my regular routine. That evening, as she watched and we again talked on the phone; Cathy suggested that I move my cigarettes further away from me. This subtle suggestion began my three and a half month journey to overcome severe addiction to cigarettes gradually. In June of the same year, as suggested by my mom, I began to write the time of day each time I lit a cigarette. Now visualizing my addiction and habits on paper, I began to look for other ways to improve my chances of survival. I also began to record events, brief notes, and thoughts, along with my time entries. These words quickly accumulated, and I began to joke with friends and family that I was writing a book. If you have ever said, “I wish I could quit smoking”, or “I need to cut back”, I hope you will read this book.

 My First Bicycle Was A J.C. Higgins


My First Bicycle Was A J.C. Higgins


$8.95


A comedy about a 9 year old boy who is disappointed and concerned about his social status in his grammer school and community becauses he receives a J.C.Higgins bicycle instead of a Schwinn. To make his point he compares his J.C.Higgins to Americas laughable version of an automobile. The Edsel. He talks about kids so desperate to not be associated with either the Edsel or the Higgins that they invented Edsel Escape Diving. This was a precision move designed by kids so that when the parents slowed the family Edsel in order to pull into the school yard, the kids would leap from the car while it was still in motion. The purpose for that little manuver was to put as much distance as possible between themselves and the joke that Detroit played on an unsuspecting public. *Author: Ray, Bill G. *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 52 *Publication Date: 2003/11/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.90 x 6.04 x 0.21 inches

 Nightwork: A History of Hacks and Pranks at MIT


Nightwork: A History of Hacks and Pranks at MIT


$18.05


An MIT “hack” is an ingenious, benign, andanonymous prank or practical joke, often requiring engineering or scientificexpertise and often pulled off under cover of darkness – instances of campus mischief sometimes coinciding withApril Fool’s Day, final exams, or commencement. (It should not beconfused with the sometimes nonbenign phenomenon of computer hacking.)Noteworthy MIT hacks over the years include the legendary Harvard-YaleFootball Game Hack (when a weather balloon emblazoned “MIT” poppedout of the ground near the 50-yard line), the campus police car found perchedon the Great Dome, the apparent disappearance of the Institute president’soffice, and a faux cathedral (complete with stained glass windows, organ, andwedding ceremony) in a lobby. Hacks are by their nature ephemeral, althoughthey live on in the memory of both perpetrators and spectators. Nightwork, drawing on the MIT Museum’s unique collection of hack-related photographsand other materials, describes and documents the best of MIT’s hacks andhacking culture. Thisgenerously illustrated updated edition has added coverage of such recent hacksas the cross-country abduction of rival Caltech’s cannon (a prankrequiring months of planning, intricate choreography, and last-minute improvisation), a fire truck on the Dome that marked the fifth anniversary of 9/11, andnumerous pokes at the celebrated Frank Gehry-designed Stata Center, and even aworking solar-powered Red Line subway car on the Great Dome. Hackshave been said to express the essence of MIT, providing, as alumnusAndre DeHon observes, “an opportunity todemonstrate creativity and know-how in mastering the physical world.”What better way to mark the 150th anniversary of MIT’s founding than tocommemorate its native ingenuity with this new edition of Nightwork?
