Vorhaus not only explains the basic types of humor and the elements of a comic plot, but also lays out an excellent plotting structure useful for any type of fiction writing. Whether you merely want to add a few touches of humor to an angsty story, or you want to write the next comic blockbuster, this book will help you on your way.
P.S. Chapter 9 alone is worth the price of the book!
The author writes in an easy to understand way.Doesnt get boring like other books.No matter what,you will gain something from this book.And,there's a few laughs too.
If you want to do stand -up comedy this book should be considered for your collection of books .It will help.I would recommend these books specifically for stand -up comedy:
1)"Zen and the art of stand-up comedy" By Jay Sankey.
2)"The comedy bible".By Judy Carter.
I have recommended this book and so have the WGA mentors so what other approval do you need!
Some people's books are sermonize without being convincing. Vorhaus does not take this path but his words are thought provoking and informative, as well as some of his natural wit chucked in as well for good measure (his chapter on practical jokes is evidence of that).
It's a journey through comedy starting from its essential nature to comic characters (writers ignore this chapter at their peril!!!!) to film scripts and more little words of advice to make you the next James L. Brooks.
And its not just about being funny but structure (yes that dreaded word again) his feature film paradigm is helpful and is just as good as buying books by Syd Field. Also a section on Sitcoms which just as good. It even has profound thoughts on creativity, which he has added to and exported in another of his books.
This book is so good it's worth 3 times its asking price. John Vorhaus is funny and full of warmth. You can do much worse but I doubt you can do much better (if you can get in contact with me immediately!!!)
