I Only Read It For the Cartoons – Richard Gehr

People who have to be funny become strange -- probably the pressure. This book is chock full of weirdos; gifted, talented, hard-working weirdos. "Available for the first time to The New Yorker’s one million-plus readers: a volume dedicated to the individual careers of the magazine’s cartoon superstars."

Yes Please – Amy Poehler

Star of Comedy Central, Saturday Night Live, and perhaps most famously, the actor behind the brilliant Leslie Knope on Parks and Recreation, Amy Poehler is 42. That's a bit early for a biography, but she's been busy. Her book is both a reflection of her past and a contemplation of her future; from the midpoint of 42, a look at life in both directions.
