Whether going to his "happy place" during a colonoscopy, contemplating a severed forearm at his neighborhood taxidermist's, sharing drugs with a stranger in the men's room of the bar car, or obsessively collecting rubbish along the roadsides of rural England, Sedaris continues to delight with his witty commentary on life's absurdities. Who of us hasn't waited for that coveted latte, chafing with suppressed rage and indignation as the preceding customer drones on and on and ON? ~ Reviewed by Amy Palmer

Beyond funny! This guy tells it like it is. Tip - before you read this book definitely watch his comedy special "Thinky Pain". You need to hear his voice first to get the best Maron experience. Also check out his WTF podcast online for a weekly dose of Maron.

Hysterical and true, Brosh's relateable and hilarious comics hit the nail on the head for most 20-30 somethings, and her more serious topics (a severe depression that kept her out of the spotlight for nearly 18 months) are handled bravely, with the perfect amount of self-deprecating humor. Plus, you won't believe how much emotion can be conveyed by characters who look they were drawn in MS Paint! For more, check out the blog by the same name as well. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Walcott

Literally laugh-out-loud funny. Allie Brosh perfectly expresses all the neurosis of today's twenty- and thirty-somethings, all with crude drawings and razor-sharp wit. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll
