What happens when there is a guy with absolutely zero sense of humor and hates comedians with a passion? This individual we’ll call Hank takes his hatred of funny people to a whole new level and starts butchering the comedians working out of 2 different Comedy clubs. Amongst the murder and mayhem in Dead comic standing, you will laugh and but hope your fave comedian doesn’t get knocked off the stage permanently.
Dead Comic standing was born out of my love for stand up comedy. (I was raised on George Carlin and Cheech and Chong to name a few). I had always wanted to perform this art form but was too afraid of being heckled but I did spend hours watching Evening at the Improv and dreaming.
2006 came around and I got the opportunity to get up on stage. Stand up for mental Health run by comedian David Granirer came to our town and I said sure why not. It was a dream I had even before writing so I jumped in with both feet and have not looked back!!!
So with this love of comedy I thought, what if there was such a person who hated comics and wanted to do something to rid the world or at least the City of Edmonton of Comedians….I wasn’t looking forward to this character taking his show on the road but hey every story needs a villain right?
7 comedians vs one serial killer who will get the last laugh.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Stand-up comic Dave Feener has a great rapport with his audience, so when his body is found maliciously stabbed a short distance away from The Laff Attak where he's just performed, there seems to be no real motive for the brutal murder. A serial killer who does not think local comics are funny has just begun his rampage.
Constables Mike Borneo and Lissa Cassway along with detective Vince Vetters are racing to find the killer before he claims another victim. Was Feener just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Left with his wedding ring and his wallet, Feener's body isn't even cold when the killer strikes again-this time stabbing Phil Vetters, a comic known for his redneck shtick and the brother of detective Vince Vetters. Just as Vince vows revenge, the killer makes a fateful mistake when he stabs another comic and does not ensure his victim is dead before he leaves the crime scene.
The killer is a sicko, but not an idiot. He's right under everyone's noses and the anticipation of a righteous kill is all just part of the fun. Only time will tell if the killer will have the last laugh.
AN EXAMPLE OF ONE OF THE ACTS IN A BOOK.
I love animals; I guess I would have to, being raised with the four primates. Dinner in our house resembled feeding time at the monkey house. I know I know…it’s not nice to compare the boys to a bunch of chimps. The chimps have a bigger shot at getting a college degree than those animals. The older three attend clown school and are starting at The Shrine circus when they graduate. The one with the penis and the brain has a Masters in Psychology.
I have never been married, but I lived with a guy for six months. The only reason that the individual in question is still alive is credited to the fact that I look horrible in orange and I didn’t want to be the prison bitch, of some chick named Hildegard.
Honestly the names some people give their kids, they’re just asking for trouble. Imagine burdening your offspring with the name of Hildegard, she’s bound to commit crimes—“Come to mommy, Hildegard ---sure she ambles straight into your arms and thwack—you never saw it coming. Just think of her plea of guilty based on getting a shitty moniker at birth.
Norbert is another name that should be avoided at all costs. You’re going to have a child with a shit load of psychiatric issues based on childhood bullying. So right after my mom read a book about what your kids’ names mean, she stopped calling Bobby, Bonzo.
Well it’s been great. I’ll be here until Sunday or whenever Jeff hands me a pink slip, whichever comes first.

Karen Vaughan lives in Peterborough, Ontario with her husband Jim and a cat named JJ who has plenty of catitude! Karen started her literary journey in 2005 when she was home on sick leave and was tired of staring at the four walls or twiddling her thumbs. An idea for what would become DEAD ON ARRIVAL popped in to her head and the feisty 30 something character Laura wouldn't leave her alone til her story was written. Laura took a break from pestering the poor author, so she could write a free-standing novel DEAD COMIC STANDING. Soon Laura was on the campaign to get Karen back to what would become the Laura and Gerry series. It now has 7 books, the latest being DEAD TO WRITES. Karen is the proud mom of one, step-mom of 4 grown kids, and 2 grandchildren. While not w writing her fingers to the bone she hosts WRITERS ROUND TABLE the second Tuesday of each month. She is also a partner with Viv Drewa in OWL & PUSSYCAT PROMOTIONS, promoting independent authors. Karen is a stand-up comedian who does her routine for local talent nights and loves reading, crafts and drawing.
