“I’m huge on Twitter.”
―An ancient proverb that means
Lonely in real life.


Jokes and haikus have a common goal: to pack the greatest punch in the most succinct way possible. In Eating Salad Drunk, today's biggest names in comedy come together to do just that, with hilarious, poignant, and (sometimes) dirty haikus about living and coping in our modern "burnout age." Contributors include Jerry Seinfeld, Michael Ian Black, Aubrey Plaza, Margaret Cho, Maria Bamford, Ray Romano, Aparna Nancherla, Ziwe Fumudoh, Chris Gethard, Sasheer Zamata, Colin Mochrie, Zach Woods, Mike Birbiglia, and many more.

The book also features 50 black and white drawings by New Yorker cartoonist Emily Flake, as well as a foreword by stand-up comedian and actor Aparna Nancherla (Crashing, BoJack Horseman, Inside Amy Schumer).

*All author proceeds from the book go towards Comedy Gives Back, a nonprofit that provides mental health, medical, and crisis support resources for comedians.


What the Fact?!

365 Strange Days in History

#1 Amazon Bestseller in History-Humor

Which U.S president was arrested three times in 1866 for speeding in his horse carriage? Why did British prison guards paint inmate cells pink in 1989? Which character did Tupac play in his high school production of The Nutcracker?


Truly stranger than fiction, this daily illustrated collection of facts, anecdotes, and stories explores one odd trivia tidbit or event through the ages, like the day the first pig actually flew (November 4, 1909) or the United States ran out of toilet paper (December 19, 1973). It's the perfect reading for anyone with a curiosity for the weird and wild side of history.
