“Funny Kid Stand Up” is a hilarious book by Matt Stanton, and the second in the “Funny Kid” series. If you haven’t yet, check out my first review on the first “Funny Kid” book, for president, where he runs for president.

Now, Max, (the main character) decides to play a prank on their new teacher, Miss Sweet. And as her name insists, she is sweet. She is probably the nicest teacher in the world. Their last teacher was really mean. (Again, read the last book!).

When he pulls it off, none of the people are laughing. So now, the “funny kid” is now the “un-funny kid.”

To prove that he is funny, he enlists for a talent show to show people he is funny, but it goes horribly wrong! He thought he was the only comedian, but there is another one, a clown. And surprisingly, he is actually more funny than Max!

What is going to happen to Max, the “un-funny kid”? Will he ever survive the shame? Read the book to find out.

I would recommend this book for ages 8-12 because younger people may not understand it and older people probably wouldn’t get it.

    From what you said, the book sounds great. I would really like to read it because I’m a comedy fan. However, before I read it I will try to get book number 1.

    Great job on your review. This seems to be funny, and sounds like a good book, and competition!

    Great job on your review. It sounds like it will live up to my expectations because I like funny books and cartoony books.

    Ryan, I am like, BLOWN AWAY by how Max goes from “the main joke tank” to “unseen outcast”. Also, isn’t “not getting it” the same as not understanding it? PS: check out MY review!

    This book sounds hilarious! I hope I get to read it soon. I love how Max tries to pull a prank on his sweet, new teacher. But I’m pretty sure ducks do not have teeth and don’t tend to be that aggressive.
