The Art and Craft of Writing a Comedy w / Peter Desberg & Jeffrey Davis

Episode 194: The Art and Craft of Writing a Comedy w / Peter Desberg & Jeffrey Davis

If you ever wanted to know some of the secrets of how to write a comedy then today's guest might be able to help. Peter Desberg and Jeffrey Davis are the authors of Now That’s Funny! The Art and Craft of Comedy Writing, a new book that provides an intimate look into the minds of twenty-nine of Hollywood’s funniest comedy writers from movies and TV shows like:

Saturday Night Live

Frasier

The Simpsons

Everybody Loves Raymond

Monk

Modern Family

The Honeymooners

There's Something About Mary

Dumb and Dumber

Cheers

Home Improvement

The writers were asked to develop a generic comedy premise created by the authors, giving readers a window into their writing process. There were no rules, no boundaries, and no limits. What emerges is an entertaining look—illuminating and hilarious—at the creative process behind hit comedy TV shows and movies.

Enjoy my conversation with Peter Desberg and Jeffrey Davis.
