The Ten Commandments of Comedy comes from an Emmy Award-winning comedy writer and teaches comedy writers to become better through following 'ten commandments' of superior comedy writing. Each rule is designed to strengthen comedy material and get the most from jokes - and when used properly, each can strengthen a gag and keep it foolproof. The objective is to deliver maximum humor--and this key to writing good comedy does so, for all levels of comedy writer and performer. Any involved in the finer art of producing comedy will find this a solid reference offering keys to what makes comedy viable.
