We love Robert Berry, and not just because he’s a regular contributor to this publication (though we love him for that too). He’s also hilarious, and now you can be as hilarious as he is (almost) thanks to his new book Robert Berry’s Big Book of Jokes. This 210-page tome contains more than 1,000 jokes and essays written by Berry himself. Within its pages, you’ll find an arsenal of puns and one-liners that you can use to trick your friends and family into thinking you’re actually pretty funny. The book is available through Berry’s website, Retrocrush.com, for just $15. Or, you can head over to Punch Line Sacramento (2100 Arden Way, Ste. 225) on Aug. 16 and celebrate the book’s release and watch Berry perform on stage with special guests, and maybe even pick up an autographed copy of the book. Purchase tickets online through Punchlinesac.com.
