Chattering Class

Humorist David Misch literally wrote the book on funny

David Misch has written for everything from “Saturday Night Live” to “Mork & Mindy.” He now teaches classes on the history of comedy… and he’s distilled his wisdom — and that of other comic luminaries — into the primer “Funny The Book:¬†Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Comedy.” He gives Brendan a crash course in Sumerian humor and the wild(e) birth of standup.
