Now the super funny polymath is getting laughs with her second bestseller, Everything’s Trash, But It’s Okay. In this wildly funny, deeply personal, and crucially timely collection of essays, Robinson explores gender, race, dating, the time she met Bono, and the OTHER time she met Bono.

    Dear Girls

    Ali Wong’s Netflix comedy specials, Baby Cobra and Hard Knock Wife, are almost as raunchy as they are raucous; I literally laughed ’til I was sick. Now, the star of Netflix’s Always Be My Maybe and mother of two is putting her unfiltered and unbelievable talent onto the page in Dear Girls, a collection of letters to her daughters. From advice for working moms in male-dominated professions, to tales of sexual (mis)adventures, to the time she drank snake’s blood, Dear Girls is both LOL and TMI.

    Girl Walks into a Bar . . .

    Many early-2000s SNL fans will remember the always hilarious (and always underrated) Rachel Dratch as Debbie Downer and Denise “Zazu” McDenna, a loudmouthed Boston teen alongside Jimmy Fallon as Sully. But what happened to her? After leaving SNL (and narrowly missing the role of Jenna on 30 Rock), Dratch was only getting offered roles as “Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians.” In Girl Walks Into a Bar…, Dratch offers hysterical anecdotes from her SNL days and adventures of her post-TV life, including dog-sitting, dating, and becoming a mom when she least expected it—at age 44.

The follow-up to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, this hilarious, insightful, and deeply personal essay collection examines Kaling’s journey to find new friendships in lonely places, navigate Hollywood as a woman of color, and become the first person in history to lose weight without any behavior modification whatsoever.

    When You Lie About Your Age, the Terrorists Win

    Standup comic and comedy writer Carol Leifer (Seinfeld, SNL, The Larry Sanders Show) faced a critical dilemma and had only two options: either continue sharing her greatest childhood memory (seeing the Beatles at Shea Stadium in 1966) or lie about her age. In this uproarious book, Leifer’s decision is clear. Praised by comedy legends including Larry David, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, and Margaret Cho, When You Lie About Your Age is Leifer’s no-holds-barred manifesto on her age, her outlook, and her life philosophy.

    The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell

    If you dig the incredible comedy of W. Kamau Bell, you can’t miss his memoir. And if you’ve missed his CNN show (United Shades of America), his FX show (Totally Biased), his Netflix special (Private School Negro), or his two podcasts (Politically Re-Active and Denzel Washington is The Greatest Actor of All Time Period), this book is the perfect introduction to the man the New York Times describes as “the most promising new talent in political comedy in many years.” Whether covering race relations, feminism, politics, or fatherhood, the self-proclaimed Black nerd’s thoughts are always hilarious, timely and, yes, awkward.

From the time she broke her shoulder trying to impress a guy, to flirting with a life-sentence in a Guatemalan prison, to having her own lacerated ear sewn back on, I’m Fine…And Other Lies offers tons of laughter (and delicious schadenfreude) from top to bottom.

    Like Brothers

    With credits including The League, Transparent, and The Mindy Project, Mark and Jay Duplass are celebrated as writers, directors, producers, actors—and brothers. With the release of Like Brothers, they’re also authors, offering a book that’s part coming-of-age memoir, part underdog story, and part insider account of succeeding in Hollywood on their own terms. “Wright. Ringling. Jonas. I’m sure you could name a bunch of famous brother teams. They’re all garbage compared to Mark and Jay,” writes Mindy Kaling in the foreword. “I can’t wait for you to read this book.” Same here.

    Dad Is Fat

    Calling all empty-nest parents, long-time parents, soon-to-be parents, children of parents, and never-ever-want-to-be parents: Dad Is Fat. Is. Hilarious. In his memoir, the world-famous standup recounts his joys, horrors, and—above all—survival strategies as the father of five kids. You’ll belly-laugh through Gaffigan’s takes on growing up in a big family (“I always assumed my father had six children so he could have a sufficient lawn crew”), to changing diapers in the middle of the night (“like The Hurt Locker but much more dangerous”), to bedtime (aka “Negotiating with Terrorists”).
