If you ever wanted to know some of the secrets of how to write a comedy then today’s guest might be able to help. Peter Desberg and Jeffrey Davis are the authors of [easyazon_link identifier=”B071GBVLC4″ locale=”US” tag=”whatisbroke-20″]Now That’s Funny! The Art and Craft of Comedy Writing[/easyazon_link], a new book that provides an intimate look into the minds of twenty-nine of Hollywood’s funniest comedy writers from movies and TV shows like:
- Saturday Night Live
- The Simpsons
- Everybody Loves Raymond
- Modern Family
- The Honeymooners
- There’s Something About Mary
- Dumb and Dumber
- Home Improvement
The writers were asked to develop a generic comedy premise created by the authors, giving readers a window into their writing process. There were no rules, no boundaries, and no limits. What emerges is an entertaining look—illuminating and hilarious—at the creative process behind hit comedy TV shows and movies.
