5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Informative, 5 July 2009
This review is from: Comedy Writing Secrets 2nd Edition: How to Think Funny, Write Funny, Act Funny and Get Paid for It (Paperback)
I don't know if it's possible to learn humour, but there are certainly plenty of techniques in this book to help the budding comedy writer or performer hone whatever natural talents they may possess into a marketable product. The book covers various areas of comedy writing, including writing for stand-up, TV, the press, greetings cards, cartoons and more. Illustrated with fun comedy one-liners from famous comedians (mainly US comics, some of whom I had not heard of as a Brit), the book is light-hearted (as you'd expect) and easy to read. Several exercises are included for the reader to test out the various techniques. I'm not sure how many secrets were revealed, but nevertheless, a great book for anyone with an interest in comedy.
