You're Lucky You're Funny: How Life Becomes a Sitcom

You're Lucky You're Funny: How Life Becomes a Sitcom Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The creator and executive producer of Everybody Loves Raymond dissects the art of comedy and the making of a sitcom classic" In television, where programs can premiere and disappear in the same week, Everybody Loves Raymond reigned as America's best-loved show for nine years with more than seventeen million viewers. As the number-one sitcom, it received more than seventy Emmy nominations, including two wins for best comedy. With You?re Lucky You?re Funny, Phil Rosenthal takes us onstage and inside the writer's room. Rosenthal's meteoric ascent was preceded by odd jobs, including a stint as a museum security guard, running a deli, and writing for a slew of forgettable shows?including one starring Robert Mitchum as a curmudgeonly homeless man taken in by two orphans. But when he met comedian Ray Romano, they discovered a shared lifetime of family dysfunction?and endless material for a sitcom.
