Stand-Up Comedy Workbook NEW via Amazon Kindle, Paperback & KindleUnlimited

Walt, I think the book works really well – very nice job. What I like most is how practical it is. You cut right to the chase of how to build and deliver a stand-up routine. And you speak directly to the fears that I am sure many people have when they find themselves in front of an audience. Very good work!

Dr. Don Sexton is a student of Walt Frasier and retired professor from Columbia University School of Business, where he taught for nearly 50 years.
