“About Do Not Feed the Clown:
“Do Not Feed The Clown” is a humor collection, consisting of 34 short works, that highlight the absurdities of our socio-political climate. It further tackles the mayhem of our news cycle and the inconsistencies of cultural norms. This is a countercultural book, a bit of a challenge to the system, but in a lighthearted way and in the tradition of the court jester. While there are many humor books of this type on the market, this book stands out because of the wide range of topics covered and the precision of satirical analysis. Finally, the author, Matt Nagin, had his work banned from Funny or Die, which, let’s face it, is all the more reason for you to read this book!
