Most people learn to write comedy through trial and error, an intuitive process that can take years to develop. But what most people don't know is that formulas and techniques exist which can cut that process down to about a month. Whether you're a novelist, essayist, blogger, journalist, speechwriter, ghostwriter, or advertiser, if you're looking for ways to integrate more humor into your writing, this book is for you.
In two short volumes, we'll cover over two dozen comedy-writing techniques and formulas, including:
- The Algebra of Humor
- The Listing Technique
- The Mind Mapping Method
- Spoonerisms and Malapropisms
- The Backdown Formula
- The Truth and Observation Formulas
- The Smashing Assumptions Formula
- The Roast Technique
- The Clash of Context Formula
- The Switch and Reverse Formulas
And many more. So what are you waiting for?
