You Can Be Funny and Make People Laugh is not a book full of witty jokes but examines techniques on how conversations and lines can be funny and make people laugh. Gregory Peart explains the rationale for effective techniques with real-life examples (over 250 in total!) and homework to practice. Exaggerations, silly counter questions, the use of pop culture, alternative ways to deliver words.
I must admit that I didn’t study all techniques by heart. That’s not what Peart had in mind. If you get inspired by a single technique or finally understand why your jokes didn’t work out in the past, that’s okay.
