20 funny people we want books from

Tina Fey is the latest in a long line of comedians and professional funny people who have added "author" to their resumé, with her recent essay collection, Bossypants. (Mindy Kaling will join this list too, in November!) With celebrity books topping bestseller lists, it's only a matter of time before these 20 funny people take a stab at writing a book too, and we can't wait.

Thanks to everyone who made a suggestion to us. If you have a favourite performer you'd like to add to this list, let us know on Twitter, Facebook or in the comments below!
