As the story opens, nine comedians of various acclaim are summoned to the island retreat of legendary Hollywood funnyman Dustin Walker. The group includes a former late-night TV host, a washed-up improv instructor, a ridiculously wealthy (3z(Bblue collar(3y (Bcomic, and a past-her-prime Vegas icon. All nine arrive via boat to find that every building on the island is completely deserted. Marooned without cell phone service or wifi signals, they soon find themselves being murdered one by one. But who is doing the killing, and why? A darkly clever take on Agatha Christies And Then There Were None and other classics of the genre, Ten Dead Comedians is a marvel of literary ventriloquism, with hilarious comic monologues in the voice of every suspect. Its also an ingeniously plotted puzzler with a twist youll never see coming!

Offends just about everybody. Just like a lot of stand up comics.

Agatha Christie meets Jackie Collins fair description of dark mystery novel fawning & mocking And Then There Were None. Kudos on R-rated comedy routines & Orange baby man business franchise proposal (?) of assorted fictional inclusive comedians by author to flesh out the characters.

Laugh out loud funny. I kept imagining who the real comedy star was that each character was modeled after. Very much like And Then There Were None but with more, um, adult themes and language.
