Wrecking Balls:

Set in the world of stand-up comedy, Charleston and Gary are on the verge of comic greatness: broke, wasted, and floundering through life. As Charleston turns 30 he faces an existential crisis. His comedy career in the gutter, he considers leaving the life. That is until Gary pilfers one of his joke ideas. Then it’s comedy Jihad to the death, and there can be only one.

5 Star Amazon Review:

From word one, this book brings the reader into the middle of this drama. Well, it’s one of those books that you either get or you don’t, and I definitely got it. After chapter one, I was hooked and couldn’t put it down. It’s well written, and writing about comedians and writing their jokes, is not always easy. Not everyone understands a “written” joke or humor, and some take it too literally. Giambrone has a way with words and telling a story, and this story works. Something about it, just works.
