A brief synopsis: Plump, balding, and middle-aged stand-up comedian Josh Steinberg has never had much luck with women. That is, until Josh meets Holly Brannigan while performing his stand-up act in a comedy club. Holly, an attractive, intelligent, and divorced 50-year-old businesswoman, becomes instantly smitten with Josh.

The lonely Josh soon falls in love with Holly. But Josh, terrified of being hurt and discarded by yet another woman, hides his true feelings for Holly by making fun of her in his stand-up act. And Holly, taking Josh’s words to heart, starts to wonder if she means anything to him at all.

“Love is the Punch Line” is a fast-paced but sure-footed romantic comedy set amidst the high-energy worlds of stand-up comedy and Hollywood movie making. The two leads, Jewish comedian Josh Steinberg and Irish event planner Holly Brannigan, are complex, well-rounded characters, riven by internal conflicts and self-doubt – in other words, completely human. If affairs of the heart interest you, you will enjoy this novel.

Description:Middle-aged stand-up comedian Josh Steinberg, formerly the star of his own popular TV series, finds himself struggling to keep his career alive, playing seedier and seedier clubs. Plump, balding, and plain-looking, he has never had much luck with women. That is, until Josh meets Holly Brannigan while performing his stand-up act in a comedy club. Holly, an attractive, intelligent, and divorced 50-year-old businesswoman, becomes instantly smitten with Josh and even finds his unconventional looks wildly sexy.

The lonely and vulnerable Josh soon falls in love with Holly, even though she’s not the statuesque type he usually goes for. But Josh, terrified of being hurt and discarded by yet another woman, hides his true feelings for Holly by making fun of her in his stand-up act. And Holly, taking Josh’s words to heart, starts to wonder if she means anything to him at all.
