The authors on KNPR's "State of Nevada!"

Las Vegans wishing to hear a lengthy interview with "Mr. & Mrs. Comedy" can, through the magic of Podcastitism! (Even those who are outside of KNPR’s footprint can hear it!) Hop on and listen instantly by clicking here.

We were quizzed on our book (of course!) and on a variety of other subjects like our appearance on NBC's Last Comic Standing, what it’s like being married standup comics, how we come up with material and hecklers. The wide-ranging interview took place in the KNPR studios on the campus of College of Southern Nevada.

Comedy Bible at the World Series of Comedy, Las Vegas, 2011

We gave a seminar on Friday morning at the World Series of Comedy, here in Las Vegas! We had a pretty healhty turnout and the feedback was enourmously positive. Our thanks to Eric, the sound and light man, for putting up the groovy .jpg's of the book's cover on the giant monitors on either side of the stage. Even we got excited about the book when we saw this pic!

Unfortunately, we had no product in hand, elsewise we probably could have sold 100 or more copies of the book throughout the course of the six-day World Series.

We did have innumerable comics approach us and either pledge to purchase the book or tell us that they'd already done so!

"Downfall" parody to promote "The Comedy Bible"

We couldn't resist. The world can stand at least one more "Downfall" parody, we think. In this one, Hitler is distraught when he learns of the existence of one more book about standup. He eventually comes around.

Chuck Darrow of the Philadelphia Daily News says
The couple, who recently relocated to Las Vegas, are certainly qualified to pen such a tome: Between them, they have logged more than a half-century’s worth of experience encompassing thousands of shows and hundreds of thousands of miles plying the stand-up trade.

USA Today called McKim & Skene "charming, sincere and helpful" and the Wall Street Journal said "gives comedy fans a rare, behind-the-curtain glimpse into the amount of work, travel and failure that any standup who embarks on a professional career can expect to endure."
