Jay's love for funny kids is evident in his new book, How to be the Funniest Kid in the Whole Wide World (Or Just in Your Class).
After an open-mic comedy audition at Chicago's famed Second City, three jokesters make the final cut. Dante, Giovanni and Georgia head to Zanies, a comedy club where Jay got his start more than 20 years ago. Jay is there to teach the kids everything he knows.
Lesson number one: Loosen up your funny bones. "Jump up and down and act crazy. It helps you get ready," Jay tells the kids. Lesson number two: It's all in the delivery.
