There is a feeling of pure delight that comes from laughing out loud while watching a hilarious movie or a TV show. Yet as funny as these lines may be, they are the work of people you will never see. The magic behind any comedy hit begins when an idea is hatched in the mind of a comedy writer and is then put down on paper. And while few of us are privy to this fascinating process, for writers Peter Desberg and Jeffrey Davis, the challenge of observing and understanding how comedy is born has culminated in a unique new book, Now That’s Funny! Desberg and Davis provide an intimate look into the minds of twenty-four of Hollywood’s funniest comedy writers, who have given us such shows as:

Saturday Night Live
Monk
Everybody Loves Raymond
The Simpsons
Frasier
Maude
Home Improvement
Valerie
Modern Family
Cheers
There’s Something about Mary
The Honeymooners
Suddenly Susan
Newhart
Sabrina the Teenage Witch
Archie Bunker’s Place
The Tracey Ullman Show
Wings
Who’s The Boss?
and more

How do you get to see the creative wheels turn? The authors’ premise was simple: Using a Q and A format, they provided each writer with a story idea and let them run with it. Each of the writers was told there were no rules, no boundaries, and no limits! Because everyone started with the same concept, the authors could see how some writers jumped in and began creating, while others asked lots of questions; how some writers stuck closely to the premise, while others turned it on its head. What emerges is an entertaining look―illuminating and hilarious in turn―at the creative process behind hit TV shows and movies.
