Funny: Battle of the Sexes
Funny: The Book is by David Misch
“FUNNY: THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES”
— “The Thin Man” is still one of the most sophisticated (and sexy) depictions of married life.
— Why you’re not friends with the people you think you’re friends with.
— “Two For The Road”: Man the Aggressor; Woman the Victorious.
— Snark, thy name is “Juno”.
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.
