    Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Comedy

    Friday, December 6, 2013 from 6:30-8:00 pm

    MischPhoto_150Writer-comedian David Misch offers a wide-ranging, fun-packed look at the principles and practice of comedy from its origins in pre-history to the worlds of movies, TV, prose, theater and stand-up.  In “Funny The Book: Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Comedy,” he explores the evolution, theories, principles, and practice of comedy, as well as the psychological, philosophical, and even theological underpinnings of humor, coming to the conclusion that (Spoiler Alert!) Comedy is God.

    The multi-talented Misch has been a comic folksinger, stand-up comedian, and screenwriter. His writing credits include “Mork and Mindy,” “Duckman,” “Police Squad!,” “Saturday Night Live,” and “The Muppets Take Manhattan.”
