But now his followers have a chance to read longer than 140 character sentences as Black releases his new book titled You’re Not Doing It Right: Tales of Marriage, Sex, Death, and Other Humiliations.
According to the publisher it has stories which include the following: “how his lesbian, feminist mother raised him to be a tough but sensitive new seventies man like Alan Alda; how his camp girlfriend dumped him for a guy nicknamed Taco; how he backed into marrying his wife by breaking up with her first; how he is completely undone by hearing a Creed song on the radio the eve of becoming a father; and how he learned to use Santa Claus as a “Bad Cop” threat to control his kids year round.”
The book is already getting great reviews and no doubt will make more people follow Black’s twitter account.

About the Author: I was born in the sixties in a little country in the Middle East. I never heard about stand-up comedy until I moved to the USA in 1984 where every night at 10:30 I watched the Johnny Carson show hoping to see a stand-up comic. Since then watching stand-up comedy has been tasteful, zero calorie food for my soul. Currently I reside in Israel.
