Sample Book Insights:

#1 There are not many great humor writers in the world. It is one of the most difficult and challenging of all the literary crafts. To write humor that is funny, you must first find a good joke, then re-tell it in your own words.

#2 To write humor, you must first understand what makes people laugh. There are many theories as to why people laugh, and they all provide some insight into what makes people laugh. But writing humor requires no funny performer or engaging personality.

#3 The tools of the humor writer are not in a physical toolbox. They’re locked away in the subconscious mind of the user. They’re tools of knowledge. The professional comedy writer knows how to write humor that the majority of people will find funny, in a reliable and repeatable way.

#4 Comedy writing is a craft that can be learned and mastered. It doesn’t take decades of practice, and it doesn’t have to be isolating or frustrating. The steps that take place in a split second are laid out in the form of a clear blueprint that anyone can learn and practice.
