The definitive book on how to "write funny" is the first to compare writing comedic screenplays with fiction and nonfiction in all forms. Using principles developed in his popular UCLA Extension Writers' Program class on humor writing and his CBS Studio City seminars on screenwriting, Schreiber includes: more than 70 excerpts from such top prose and screenwriters as Woody Allen, Steve Martin, and Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.; unique writing exercises developed exclusively for this book; and vital information on writing comedy for TV, stage, and audio.
Where else would you find 11 Modes of Comedic Dialouge, 13 Things Bad Screenwriters Commonly Do and The Cream of Wheat Theory of Exposition?
