DID YOU HEAR THE ONE ABOUT ? Every great joke has a punch line, and every great humor writer has an arsenal of experiences, anecdotes, and obsessions that were the inspiration for that humor. In fact, those who make a career out of entertaining strangers with words are a notoriously intelligent and quirky lot. And boy, do they have some stories. In this entertaining and inspirational book, you'll hear from 21 top humor writers as they discuss the comedy-writing process, their influences, their likes and dislikes, and their experiences in the industry. You?ll also learn some less useful but equally amusing things, such as:
  • How screenwriter Buck Henry came up with the famous "plastics" line for The Graduate.
  • How many times the cops were called on co-writers Sacha Baron Cohen and Dan Mazer during the shooting of Borat.
  • What David Sedaris thinks of his critics.
  • What creator Paul Feig thinks would have happened to the Freaks & Geeks crew if the show had had another season.
  • What Jack Handey considers his favorite Deep Thoughts.?
  • How Todd Hanson and the staff of The Onion managed to face the aftermath of 9/11 with the perfect dose of humor.
  • How Stephen Merchant and Ricky Gervais created the original version of The Office.
  • What it's really like in the writers? room at SNL.
Funny and informative, And Here's the Kicker is a must-have resource - whether you're an aspiring humor writer, a fan of the genre, or someone who just likes to laugh.
