Funny: The Movies 2
Funny: The Book by David Misch will be available from Applause Books June 2012
“FUNNY: THE MOVIES 2”
— “Some Like It Hot” is generally considered the funniest movie ever made.
— One of those lines constantly quoted by those irritating people who constantly quote Monty Python. Of which I am one.
— No one did Stupid/Smart like Judy Holliday.
— Bringing American 6th-grade humor to the world: “Airplane!”
Funny: The Book is an entertaining look at the art of comedy, from its historical roots to the latest scientific findings, with diversions into the worlds of movies (Buster Keaton and the Marx Brothers), television (The Office), prose (Woody Allen, Robert Benchley), theater (The Front Page), jokes and stand-up comedy (Richard Pryor, Steve Martin), as well as personal reminiscences from the author’s experiences on such TV programs as Mork and Mindy.
