Laugh Your Way Through Life, Says New Book


Comedian/author Ken Willidau faces homosexuality, depression, suicide with humor.

Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) November 05, 2012

Facing tough situations? Work through it with laughter, says author Ken Willidau.

In his new book Getting Everything Backwards, Willidau offers readers a compilation of jokes and one-liners, using unconventional humor to discuss tough topics he's faced head-on and those often viewed as controversial, such as sex, depression, suicide and homosexuality.

Based on a theme of The Holy Bible and set in a guilt-ridden world, the book also takes a funny and sometimes dark look at look at life, relating it to well-known Biblical stories in ways that make readers laugh about usually non-comedic subjects.

“I've always laughed at everything in life,” said Willidau. “Being manipulated and bullied by others my entire life has given me a unique perspective: Life's so short as it is to be taken too seriously, and since time flies when you're having fun, it won't seem near as long as it might have if you laugh your way through it.”

Getting Everything Backwards is Willidau's seventh book and can be considered a “best of” collection of his comedic material.

“Let's face it: Life's hectic right up to the very end,” he said. “That's why I write one-liners. Who has the time to read a whole story on the toilet these days? Read two pages. Flush. Be off.”
