8 Murray, Ken Ken Murray's Giant Joke Book
U.S. Ace Books, Inc. 1954 #D-62. First Ace Books Edition. Mass Market Paperback. Fair. 
$.35 is the original price. 320 pages. Reasonaby tight binding but the book's starting to show it's age.
Covers: Corner creasing and creases from opening the book plus a couple of small spots of Cover wear on the front.
Spine: Torn at the bottom right for 2" and the usual crease from book opening.
In General: The book pressed against something which left an indent at the bottom for the first 150 pages which I straightened out as best as was possible. Someone price clipped the first page for 2" at the top right corner.
Story: As the Title says. It's got lengthy and short Stories before getting to the Punch Lines so it's more like Monologues a Comedian would tell on Stage rather than one-line zingers, so to say. But there are lots and lots of jokes. I never heard of him but he did work on T.V. and a couple of movies although the stuff sounds kind of obscure. His jokes are probably the type where you get the drum rolls at the end. Bidda bidda boom. 004384
