Mike Polk, Jr.
Comedian Mike Polk Jr. has received more than 50 million views on YouTube alone for his witty Internet videos ("Hastily Made Tourism Video," "Cleveland Browns: Factory of Sadness," and others). Now he delivers the same wicked sense of humor in a book.

This hilarious rustbelt satire lampoons Cleveland's quirks, including our boundless obsession with crappy sports teams, the nonstop quest to reinvent our civic image, and a grab-bag collection of odd local celebrities.

Polk tackles such timely topics as: Great Places to Take a Dump Downtown . . . Riding the RTA: A Fascinating Cultural Experience . . . A Cleveland Enemies Hall of Fame . . . A Comparison of Three Area Gentlemen's Clubs . . . A Fabulous Remake of Cleveland's Own Flag . . . and much more.

Full color photos throughout.

Polk brings with him the familiar arsenal of satire and wit. He lampoons Cleveland in the way only natives can, noting in particular [their] eternal obsession with basement-dwelling sports franchises and their constant struggles to reinvent the city's civic image. — Cleveland Scene
A funny, profane, polemic perusal of our fair city . . . Man, this guy has stories and opinions and he shares. He's packed some funny ones and some finely comic tragic ones in this slim picture book with big print in easy-read type. . . . it's hard to pick favorite sections--that's what makes it a great coffee table book even if you don't have a coffee table . . . This book goes with me to Canada so I can quit trying to explain to “those people” why it's actually fun to live in Cleveland. — CoolCleveland.com
