He has just written the definitive textbook on the subject that is not only highly informative, but hilarious as well." - Fannie Flagg author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café and Standing in the Rainbow "My talented friend has written a book that gives you valuable guidelines on how to write funny. Even if you don't write, the book will help you be the life of the party." - Jonathan Winters author of Winters' Tales "Through careful analysis of funny writing and practical suggestions on how to apply technique, Ian Bernard actually achieves the nearly impossible: he teaches you how to mine life's situations for their humor. This book is not only instructional, it's a virtual tour of modern humor." - Christopher Moore author of Practical Demon Keeping and Coyote Blue "For everyone who has ever watched a TV sitcom, a movie comedy, or read a humorous book and thought, 'I can write better than that,' Ian Bernard now hands you the tools to do so.
