We may need to have a word with Paul Provenza‘s marketing team. His new book Satiristas! is out now…as opposed to right before the holiday season. It’s an epic book of interviews with epic comedians and the perfect Hanukkah and/or Thanksgiving gift for all your depressed relatives. Boxing Day, anyone? Provenza, director of the film about comics’ dirty little secret inside joke The Aristocrats joins photographer and co-author Dan Dion and interviews nearly 100 “comedians, contrarians, raconteurs and vulgarians.” The likes of Drew Carey, George Carlin, Vernon Chatman, Cheech & Chong, Margaret Cho, Stephen Colbert, Billy Connolly and Troy Conrad and everyone else in between. It’s an encyclopedia (that’s a paper wikipedia out there for all you tweens) of funny/angst.
