An entire industry devoted to comedy and joke books would seem to disagree.
Comedy books are written in a very different format than scripts that are meant to be spoken aloud in front of an audience.
Rubbish. Tons of comedy books are in prose form that is not intended to be spoken aloud.

Comedy that is meant to be read is different from comedy that is meant to be heard. Reading a transcript of some George Carlin routine is not nearly as funny as watching him perform it.
