About the Author

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Contains many "how to," relevant examples, and practical excercises. An amazzing book! Although the cover does not do it justice. (I am still figuring out what is the cover funny about or what. It even made me procastinate on this book and read other horrible books on the topic, thinking they were better.)
If you are seriously determined to write funny, I recommend this one. The best!
Plus, Brad's a riot, both in person and on paper. Well worth the buy!
Humor sits at a complex intersection between context and audience. And who better to explain what tickles our collective funny bones than Brad Schreiber, author of "What Are You Laughing At? How to Write Funny Screenplays, Stories and More." Schreiber flawlessly delivers over 260 pages of advice, whimsicality, screenplay and prose excerpts, and a plethora of "Do This Now" exercises to help aspiring humor writers expand their mental margins. I'm definitely adding this one to my Recommended Reads list for the workshops and online classes I teach. Schreiber's conversational style of explaining the elements and nuances of comedy also makes me suspect that when he tells stories in person many a listener has had coffee come out of his/her nose.
