    1. I had some iTumes money so went ahead and got the expensive audiobook version which I was glad about because you really need to hear Scrimshaw s voice in these bits I ve caught him at DragonCon for the last few years and he s always hilarious The only bit I ve seen him do better live was the Competitive Hugging one It s a funny idea in the book but to see it done with audience volunteers is absolutely hilarious.

    2. 4.5 You ve heard him on Wits and Obsessed, you ve watched him rock the Rockstar Storytellers, you ve seen him in acclaimed Fringe Fest shows like An Inconvenient Squirrel and plays like Sexy Librarian File Under Rock Musical now read the book After having sampled and been very impressed with all of these wonderfully delicious offerings from the fecund imagination of Joseph Scrimshaw, I was looking forward to dig into this hotdish of nerdy humor Comedy of Doom is a highly amusing and compulsively [...]

    3. My primary criticism of this book is that it is too short When Scrimshaw is on , he is immensely enjoyable As with most humor books, there are a couple of places where the humor doesn t quite take off But overall, it is a joy to read his reminiscences about the place of Star Wars and Doctor Who in his childhood and, consequently, his life Sci fi nerds of all ages can certainly relate.

    4. I ve really enjoyed Scrimshaw s comedy and this book was no different I liked the variety from psuedo fictional to personal narrative to the short offhand comments in between the longer pieces The choose your own adventure was quite enjoyable If you like geeky things and laughing, a definite must read.

    5. If you re not familiar with Scrimshaw through his blog, plays, or podcasts, this is a wonderful collection to get to know his nerdy and poignant humor.If you are familiar with him for any of these reasons, you already know you love his stuff, so why not keep it in on easy to find location Fast, fun, and smart.

    6. If you re a geek, or, like me, have geek tendencies, you ll love Comedy of Doom from fellow Minnesotan Joseph Scrimshaw Takes on Star Wars, Harry Potter, vampires, video games, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, JANE AUSTEN even a choose your own adventure story Funny and clever.

    7. A little shortbut not surprisingly so, as it is a book of comedic musings In other words I want .

    8. Hit and miss, hits than misses The shortest bits were the funniest his longer form stuff tended to drag.
