Smith will launch the book, That Which Is Not Said, with his only gig at the Edinburgh Festival on Sunday.
None of the comics were paid for their poems, so all profits from the £7 book will go to homeless charity Crisis. But only 1,000 copies have been printed.
The 94-page anthology was compiled by 24-year-old promoter Simon Pearce, who runs a Sunday night gig at Up The Creek in Greenwich, South London.
He said: ‘I decided to do this with six weeks to go until the start of the Fringe and thus began a relentless month of pester and nag.
‘The comics responded very well to the idea but most were unsure whether to give me something silly and trite or pour their heart onto the page.
‘I offered to preference whatsoever so what we’re left with is a hilarious but tender tome; the perfect joke book.’here.
