    Comedy audio books?

    Does anyone have any suggestions for a funny audio book on cd? I'm thinking on the lines of Ellen DeGeneres, Bernie Mac, rather than a fictional story.

    My mom and I are driving from AZ to MN leaving on Saturday and that's a looooong time in the car. I thought a funny audio cd would be a good thing in the car.

    I would rather it be fairly tame, as listening to sex jokes with my mom in the car is not my idea of a good time. So Chris Rock, who I'd love, is probably out.

    Well depends what your looking for.....
    I can highly reccomend anything by Dave Barry... He's really funny and puts a twist on life the Dave Barry Way....



    I also created A thread on David Sedaris. He is also very funny and his humor is very PG off the wall. Sometimes he mentions some F words and S words...




    Other pretty good/funny IMO
    Ray Romano, Ellen Degeneres, Margaret Cho, Rita Rudner, George Carlin (He does into language but still funny!) and there is one.....

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    I didn't think of Dave Barry- he is hilarious.

    The James Herriott books are good: "All Creatures Great & Small", "All Things Bright & Beautiful".

    Dave Barry rocks.
    You might also go a little old-school and look for some Lewis Grizzard. I don't know if there are actually audio tapes of his books, but I used to have an old bootleg of him telling stories (in sort of the way Garrison Keillor does, only Grizzard was way southern and, imo, a lot funnier). Just his accent alone cracked me up.
