The newest installment of the human race’s most “devastatingly” popular humor series.
The Darwin Awards are more than just a brand. They’re a pop culture phenomenon. With six books and a website that draws in more than a million unique visitors every month, the Darwin Awards rivals the Onion and The Simpsons as one of the biggest humor franchises in the world.
Featuring all-new tales of the marvelously macabre, The Darwin Awards Countdown to Extinction chronicles the astonishing acts of individuals who have taken a swan dive into the shallow end of the gene pool. From attaching a five-horsepower engine to a barstool to hammering a metal hook into an explosive device to using a taser to treat a snake bite, these gloriously gruesome incidents prove that the countdown (to human extinction) is well under way. And we won’t exit this mortal coil without one last laugh.
Patrick Lawlor, an AudioFile Earphones Award winner and Audie Award finalist, is also an accomplished stage actor, director, and combat choreographer. He has worked extensively off Broadway and has been an actor and stuntman in both film and television.
