    I have actually found that the best book on humor I have read is "On Writing Well" by William Zinser. That book shot my humor writing up to a whole new level. Of course it would be great for text game, but conversational humor requires a lot more.

    For me, I usually find some pretty good stuff in any book, especially those that contain negs. In the end, though, humor comes down to observation of details and a quick wit. Practice this often, and you'll easily become funny.

    Just watch/listen to standup comedy. Start watching Comedy Central. You can buy comedians on iTunes.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “WOW...What a Ride!”

    If you're up for it, I actually recommend actually trying out stand-up comedy. This will teach you to calibrate to the audience's response, an essential skill in pick-up.

    Try local bars and lounges. If you're any good at it, you can do it twice a month and pay your rent that way..
