"Andy Horton's latest book is not only refreshing, insightful, and effortlessly scholarly; it's also imbued with that rare quality so lacking in its field—a shameless sense of fun."—Herschel Weingrod, screenwriter (Trading Places, Twins, Space Jam, Kindergarten Cop)

"Andy Horton does a masterful job of explaining the inexplicable—the elusive principles of comedy. The book is a celebration of those who have mined for humor in the most barren landscapes and struck gold. Horton emphasizes the importance of laughing in the face of adversity. These are more than good rules for writing. These are good rules for living."—Barbara Hall, screenwriter (Northern Exposure, I'll Fly Away, Chicago Hope)
