THE MOST FUN YOU CAN HAVE
IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE
Welcome to the party!
Over the recent horrific years of COVID-19, face masks, wholesale hospitalizations and deaths, political upheavals, riots, canceled travels and hug-free two-dimensional Zoom gatherings, I had an epiphany. It was the discovery that when I was laughing and having a hilarious time, my daily dose of angst, anger, worry and fear vanished.
The challenge: how could I share laughter with others and do my darnedest to make the world a happier place?
What sparks laughter? Jokes for one thing.
I decided to dig deep and came up with 87 of the best jokes -- thigh-slappers -- I managed to remember over my past eighty-six years. (NOTE: These are for adults. Most are R-rated.)
• You will start with a YouTube link to the Funniest Joke (IMO) in the History of the World. (If you know a funnier one, I’d love to hear it!)
• Okay, 87 jokes do not make a book. What else is out there that makes people happy? In prowling the endlessly fascinating millions of hours available in the YouTube universe, I stumbled across two minutes and 31 seconds that changed my life.
IN PERFORMANCE: MARC GINSBURG

Oops... Patter Song-and-dance Masters
Right after I finished Bawdy Jokes & Patter Songs and sent it off to the publisher, I suddenly realized a huge omission -- the five masters of the patter-song-and-dance. I quickly added them to the anthology. Here's a favorite. NOTE: In the history of motion pictures, this is the only instance where Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly appeared together.

• These jokes and patter songs are true dazzlers -- on stage, at the dinner table, in your living room, on Zoom or as audience wake-ups in PowerPoint presentations.
