Publisher's Summary

Only Bill Maher, the star of Comedy Central's Politically Incorrect and a regular guest on The Tonight Show, could have written True Story...so he did. The place: New York. The time: the early 1980s. The scene: the red-hot comedy clubs, very late at night. The cast: five would-be stand-up comics, their egos, and their girls. The result: a downright hilarious novel about trying to be funny for fame, fortune, and fornication. This is Bill Maher's report from the front, a stageside table at the birth of the comedy boom. You'll laugh in all the right places.

What the critics say

"This is the novel I would have written about stand-up comedy if I was a sick egghead like Bill Maher." (Roseanne)
"Anyone considering a career in stand-up comedy should read this book, then consider something else, because all this great stuff is over." (Jerry Seinfeld)
