Bob Odenkirk is a legend in the comedy-writing world, winning Emmys and acclaim for his work on Saturday Night Live , Mr. Show with Bob and David , and many other seminal television shows. This book, his first, is a spleen-bruisingly funny omnibus that ranges from absurdist monologues (Martin Luther King Jr.'s Worst Speech Ever) to intentionally bad theater (Hitler Dinner Party: A Play), from avant-garde fiction (Obit for the Creator of Madlibs) to free-verse poetry that's funnier and more powerful than the work of Calvin Trillin, Jewel, and Robert Louis Stevenson combined.
Odenkirk's debut resembles nothing so much as a hilarious new sketch comedy show that's exclusively available as a streaming video for your mind. As Odenkirk himself writes in The Second Meeting of Jesus and Lazarus, it is a book to be read aloud to yourself in the voice of Bob Newhart.
