Humor and Satire (26 Books)


Comedy literature is a category of writing in which the main emphasis is on humour. These films are designed to elicit laughter from the audience. Comedies are generally light-hearted dramas and are made to amuse and entertain the audiences. The comedy genre often humorously exaggerates situations, ways of speaking, or the action and characters. Works in this style traditionally have a happy ending.

The Unconventional Life of Jenna Jaghe

By: Ms. Victoria Jane Ward

What's better than a comedy about an unhinged woman, kidnapping a man with dementia, bestiality, friends, family and the tribulations of relationships? A book about all of those things set in Yorkshire of course! Jenna Jaghe, an unmarried bridal shop owner, has spent the best part of the last year attempting to conform to the 50’s good housewife guide that has been rammed down her throat by her uppity boyfriend, James Flannigan and his bourgeois mother. Her Saturday ev...

Wine o’clock – Best night ever again until it no longer was. Sod off James – the millstone around my neck – was the general consensus amongst mi mates and it didn’t take much coercing for me to adopt their way of thinking (well deindividuation is a real problem amongst group members) and on that note I cannot really be held responsible for the catastrophe that happened next. So after telling James to simmer darn when he reprimanded me again for going OTT during happy h...

Chistes de Cuba : Sobre la revolucion

By: Modesto Arocha

Esta selección y compilación de chistes del humor político popular cubano contiene cerca de 800 chistes de los que circulan en Cuba. Los sociólogos que se han dedicado a la recopilación y estudio del humor político en el socialismo, conocen que es difícil rastrear el origen de cada uno de los chistes, ya que al tener todos esos países condiciones de escasés, represión, ineficacia y autoritarismo similares, los chistes creados en un país pasan a otros de manera clandesti...

Este libro, publicado en los Estados Unidos por el autor en el exilio, y naturalmente prohibido en Cuba, constituye un monumento al espíritu indomable de algunos hombres heroicos y divertidos, que no dejarían morir la risa en Cuba, aún en medio de un adoctrinamiento interminable.

Sparks : Satire and Reviews

By: Ankur Mutreja

This book is an alternative representation of my thoughts, which have been more comprehensively presented in another of my books Writings @ Ankur Mutreja. I felt the need to publish this book separately to cater to the needs of those readers who don’t have much time to read books. This book is indeed a light reading. The book starts with the chapter entitled Satire, which, as the name suggests, comprises pointed attacks on the societal idiosyncrasies and hypocrisies,...

Champignons League

By: Ronaldo Siète

Recensies: "Een feest van humor en herkenning" (Algemeen Lachblad). "In één ruk uitgelezen" (Het Blije Volk)

Jan de Beer stond op en sloeg met zijn vuist op de tafel. Het gedonder in de lege koffiekopjes was genoeg voor Tante Truus om nog een keer met de kan rond te gaan en voor de overige aanwezigen om hun kop te houden, want anders konden ze de volgende knal van Jan op hun achterhoofd verwachten. Jan was altijd kort en duidelijk: “Als ik mag kiezen tussen de bekerfinale spelen in de Kuip of een miljoenencontract bij een Arabische sjeik, dan kies ik de finale. En als we dat ni...

Homosexual Weekend

By: Rutherford McQuoib

A group of old gay, college friends get together in a rural cabin for a weekend of wine, memories, choreographed dance routines, pot roast, cookies, sex, and conflict.

Peaches finally emerged from the kitchen carrying a large platter covered by a metal cloche. "Dinner is now available for you to consume right now," he whispered airily. "I can't wait!" Rod exclaimed excitedly. "You will not have to wait for your dinner for I have it my hands in front of you," Peaches said softly. With that he lifted the cloche.

WTF! This is a Liberal Utopia!

By: Frank B. Thompson, III

Audiobook (Part 1) available - fbthompson3.com What would America look like in 2050, if the liberals ultimately prevail? Pushing discourse down to the same high-sounding, muddled thinking of the geniuses on 'the left;' through vapid, touchy-feely, non-erudite, irrational conclusions and illogical, logical sounding arguments. The book the publishing houses would never let see the light of day.

The year is 2020 when Professor Felix Schwartz, your typical, garden variety, liberal college professor, steps out in front of a Mack truck and the lights go out. Thirty years pass by, all the while Schwartz remains a walking vegetable and ward of the state. By 2050 the country has gone through some changes thanks to a dramatic shift in the makeup in the country's populace giving liberals (referred to as assclowns, moonbats, goofnads, or asshats) control over Washing...

Enrico el Matamoros : Escrito por Akbal Kan

By: Akbal Kan

La historia de Enrico, el Matamoros, escrita de manera anónima por un tal Akbal Kan, forzado seudónimo en lengua maya de un conocido autor de letras hispanas, es, sin ningún margen de duda, la expresión literaria del descontento y la miseria que vive en conjunto el Pueblo de Honduras. En respuesta a tales desmanes, aparece esta pequeña pero divertida obra, que emplea el humor de las antiguas chanzas castellanas, aunque no su estilo, para ridiculizar, como en aquello...

Don Ibrahim, que se había apartado ya de la religión de sus padres y en cambio adoptado el cristianismo, llevó a casa a un pastor evangélico, “un apóstol” que era popular por aparecer en un espacio televisivo, para que viera a su desdichada y aquejada consorte. No obstante, con las visitas del apóstol el semblante de doña Mina, en vez de mejorar, empeoraba. No eran efectivos ya las tocaduras de los “mantos sagrados de Belén”, el beber de las “aguas traídas exclusivamente...

Amuzaj Rakontoj

By: Pejno Simono

Amuzaj Rakontoj. Jen - pri duviva kato, pri nigra mono, pri hontdevanta fierulo, pri trinkaĵoj por varmega tago, pri strangaj procesioj, pri direktoro sendirekta, pri efikoj de blovado, pri profeto kaj profito, pri flugtrejnado de anĝeloj, pri vojaĝo al Esperantopolo.

Ŝtopilo estis la nomo de la ĥemiinstruisto. Memkompreneble jen ne lia ĝusta nomo, sed tio ne speciale interesu. Ĉiuj nomis lin Ŝtopilo, iam eĉ li sin mem. Ŝtopilo estis iomete dikeca bonhumora fraŭlo. Li certe jam estis pasinta sian vivan apogeon kaj fakte laŭ la firma opinio de la plimulto de siaj klasanoj li estis tute senseksa. Pro tio eble kelkaj krizaj butonoj de lia pantalonfendo regule troviĝis en malfermita stato, fenomeno, kiu estis interrompita nur dum la mallo...

Time to Think : Eight Short Stories

By: Rigby Taylor

‘Time To Think’ is a collection of eight short tales about how to cope with such things as unwelcome evangelists, visitors, praise, sexual attention, living in a nursing home, relations, genetic modification and sexual urges.

Spreading the Word Sebastian gazed unseeing from the verandah into the sun filled garden. As usual a zillion thoughts jostled aside all attempts to attain a state of Zen-like relaxation. With an impatient sigh he sat up, dusted a few crumbs from the divan, rearranged the pillows then lay back with his hands at his side. Yogic breathing—that would do the trick. He managed to hold his mind still for at least three seconds before a large spider constructing an intricate we...
