Comedy legend David Brenner shows how humor can give us the power to transcend tragedy.

On September 11, 2001, David Brenner was in the midst of a 48-week stand-up comedy gig in Las Vegas. Immediately after the tragic day, he cancelled the engagement and instructed his manager to book him on a nationwide tour. He called it the “Laughter to the People” tour, and it was to become the most gratifying chapter in his long and distinguished career—a nightly session of hilarity and healing which absolutely confirmed his conviction that “laughter is the best medicine, and if one can laugh, one can live.”

In this collection, Brenner offers brilliant comic riffs—well-tested on his audiences—on a wide range of issues, from the personal to the political. His topics include fear of flying, marriage and divorce, terrorism, political correctness, sex, aging, war, smoking, losing weight, pets, religion, and sports. With its razor-sharp wit and healthy doses of humanity, I Think There’s a Terrorist in My Soup will leave listeners breathless with laughter and strengthened with hope.

“This ‘survival’ guide, meant to help us transcend tragedy through humor, is as good as a live performance. With humanity and honesty, he offers this work as a prescription for our ailing world. Apply liberally; repeat as needed.”

    " There are spots in the book that are laugh-out-loud funny, but the sections on religion and politics are too bitter for my taste. Like George Carlin ended up late in his life, the bitterness tends to outweigh the humor. I didn't even finish the book. "

    " This book isn't all that funny and it contains quite a bit of language, I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone. "
