Mock Stars: Indie Comedy and the Dangerously Funny Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mock Stars traces the evolution of indie comedy from the underground music circuit into mainstream America. Through candid interviews with major players, including David Cross, Patton Oswalt, Neil Hamburger, Maria Bamford, Fred Armisen, Aimee Mann, and dozens of others, John Wenzel reveals how comedy is becoming relevant—and dangerously funny—again.

About the Author

John Wenzel first got the indie-comedy bug watching HBO's Mr. Show, a sketch comedy program with which he's still obsessed. He currently writes about music, comedy, and new media for The Denver Post and has written for websites and magazines such as Rockpile and Shredding Paper.
