I've decided I need to read something light. I'd like to make a list of some funny books. Non-fiction is okay!
I can recommend The Great Typo Hunt.

Laurie Notaro..
Kind of depends on your 'demographic" - and one or two of Laurie's books were very funny but a recent one I tried did not interest me so much.

How about the one by Whoopi Goldberg? " Am I Nuts, or is it just Me?" that might not be the exact title, as I lent the book out and can't go check for sure. It was hilarious.............and so full of plain common sense, which, IMHO, is in very short supply.

Sounds good.
Ellen DeGeneres also has a book (or two?) and so does
Betty White.
Ellen's book is not biographical at all and is filed with humor in the library. Betty's title is "IF you ask me (and of course you won't!)" which to me sounds exactly like something she'd say.

Bill Bryson is funny on several different topics.
