The Comic Toolbox: How to Be Funny Even If You're Not Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Comic Toolbox is a straightforward, often humorous workbook approach to creative problem solving. Vorhaus offers writers and comics, the tools of the trade — "clash of context, " "tension and release, "the law of comic opposites, " "the wildly inappropriate response" and more. Readers will learn that comedy = truth and pain — the essence of the comic situation — and that fear is the biggest roadblock to comedy. Kill your ferocious editor within, and rich, useful comic ideas will flow.

Synopsis:

How to be funny even if you're not.
