Seeking an old stand-up comedy paperback with stand-up transcripts... familiar?
I'm hoping someone can help me out with this quest I'm on.
When I was a kid, I remember my dad had a paperback book that was full of classic stand-up comedy bits. They were all written out, word for word, as hard as that may seem to believe.
I remember specifically (I think?) that the Smothers Brothers "Mom Always Liked You Best" was in there, and maybe some Bill Cosby and Robert Klein as well? It was probably published in the early 80's with a focus on the comedy of the 60's and 70's.
I've tried doing google searches, but I don't have a good enough description to come up with meaningful results. I figure my last resort is any comedy fan who may have seen this book from way back in the day as well.
So, how about it? Does this book sound familiar to anyone? Perhaps a suggestion on how I might find my way to this book again?

Just thought I'd bump this question up in case anyone happens to have come across this book (or new members recall it)... anyone's memory percolating?
