I ll be here all week
Ill Be Here All Week by Ward AndersonWard Anderson flays open the perceived rock star glamour of stand-up comedy to show us how it really is.--Aisha Tyler
Falling in love is like stand-up comedy. You have to be crazy to do it. . .
Spence is a stand-up comedian whose claim to fame is a one-time appearance on The Late Late Show. Eight years ago. Since then, hes been living on the road, working in clubs like The Comedy Crib or The Funny Farm or The Laff Shack--if hes lucky. More often than not, his agent lands him gigs in country western bars. On a good night, he gets free drinks; on a bad night, he offends the audience with dirty jokes. Spences ex-wife thinks he should find a nice girl and settle down. His ex-wifes husband thinks he should stop having his mail sent to their house. What does Spence think? That trying to have a relationship on the road is no laughing matter. Especially when he meets Sam. . .
Shes smart, shes beautiful, and shes Canadian--but shes not putting up with his schtick. Sam wants Spence to drop the jokes and be himself, which is hard for a man whos funny for a living. But the closer they get, the more successful Spence becomes. Can a stand-up comic live happily ever after with the girl of his dreams. . .without it ending in a punchline?
Ill Be Here All Week does more than offer a window into the life of a stand-up comic. Any reader would feel like they are actually on that stage, living the life and hoping that theyll get out alive. Underneath it all is a love story that is sweet and funny. --Ophira Eisenberg, standup comic and author of Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy

Moonlighting has been an American staple, holding a stable job during the day while pursuing something more personal and fun during the night time. Although associated in the media with private eyes, shady business deals and freelance medical personnel, others have found that their off time can be put to some rather humorous use. Enter Department of Corrections worker Robert Rau. Rau holds a desk job many of us can relate to. He works until he has to clock out, when he then can start his more personal routine: comedy. This is basically what it feels like. He decided to give it a try.
