With a preface by Ben Wicks

In addition to his pursuits as a musical humorist, composer, singer and composer, David W. Barber has spent three decades in his “day job” (well, more often a night job and too many weekends) as a journalist – a reporter, critic, essayist and editor at such daily newspapers as the Kingston Whig-Standard, and the Toronto Globe and Mail and National Post and as a freelancer for magazines as various as Canadian Living, Investment Executive and even The New Yorker. In The Last Laugh he takes a witty, offbeat and often skewed look at events in the day’s news, culled from short pieces he has written over the years.
