3.0 étoiles sur 5 Maybe there are some cultural differences 18 juillet 2011
Par theDudeLV - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'll start with the positive.
The author lays out some very helpful joke writing methods, most notably the "joke web". These won't write the jokes for you, but they will give you lots of very relevant information to create jokes. The book was easy to follow, and a overall a good quick read.

Negative.
I think perhaps because the author is British and I'm American, there may be a bit of a cultural gap in regards to what is funny. For example, the first chapter is about how to construct puns. I will admit that occasionally a pun is funny, but for the most part they should be avoided. She keeps coming back to puns throughout the book, which for me was a bit like literary nails on a chalkboard. I basically took her methods and removed the bits regarding puns, and that worked better for me. Also, I thought this book was a tad overpriced. I bought it new for $18, I think given the length of the book something closer to $12 would have been more fair.

I am a professional humorist and storyteller. For years I have struggled with the need to continuously develop and deliver new material. I have read dozens of books on the subjects of humor and joke writing, but The Serious Guide to Joke Writing by Sally Holloway is by far the best.

Ms Holloway writes in a conversational and engaging style. Her prose is concise and boy, does she ever deliver! The chapters on Joke-Webs, the Hadron Joke Collider and the Surrealist Inquisition are gold mines. A longtime user of mind mapping, I was immediately able to put the joke web and Hadron Joke Collider ideas to use with excellent results. Not to worry though, if you are not familiar with mind mapping Ms Holloway's clear instructions and trouble-shooting guides will have you using both techniques in no time if you are willing to put in the work. The Surrealist Inquisition is proving to be a challenging technique, but one that I will spend more time with since I can easily see its ability to help come up with wildly funny ideas.

The book flows, pulling you along and guiding you through each exercise. If you are interested in writing jokes, humorous essays, monologues, or simply adding some punch to your presentations, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 the finest way to learn. 5 décembre 2010

Sally Holloway's Serious Guide to joke writing is for anyone who wants to understand how the joke writing process works. The exercises and examples are excellent. This book is a fantastic examination of how ideas are looked for, and once found, how they can formed into jokes. A book for professionals, beginners, for anyone who has that twinge that they would like to get to the funny, and could do with a map. Do yourself a favour get this travel guide for the comic mind.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 comedy writing can be taught 10 janvier 2011
Par Wag - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This is a great book for people who want to write comedy on this side of the pond as well as in England.
The author has taught comedy writing and done it so she knows what it takes.
It starts with lowly wordplay. It's fun breaking down words. It's a great mental entertainment when you are stuck somewhere you don't want to be.
She shows how you need to prep your mind by doing the work. Her "joke webs" help you see the shared connections between different things.
She shows how to read news for angles. She suggests reading a story aloud more than once till the funny stuff becomes apparent.
She shows how to probe deeply for more personal material.
Can comedy writing be taught? You bet.
Recommended highly and soberly.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 awsome! 5 juillet 2012
Par Jeff - Publié sur Amazon.com

great ideas. It was really different from all the other books because it kept feeding you new perspectives with every new idea taught. It seems like a "think outside the box" book on comedy writing. most books give you 1 or 2 examples and moves on, but this book gives more depth on how to play with ideas.
