Customer reviews for The Comedy Helpline

Reviewer

Not a bad book, but probably could have been edited more. There's quite a bit of "interview" information, which is interesting, but not pushing forward any ideas about comedy. Questions like: "Last TV Series you binge watched". Meh.

Now that type of question is expected in a magazine (which all of these articles are from), but they could have skipped it for the book.

There's not much actual hard info on topics like "HOW TO WRITE A JOKE", or "HOW TO DESIGN A PIECE OF COMEDY"....it's much more generic, which is also to be expected.

But there are some nice bits and a couple of very interesting tricks.

So I'm overall pleased with it. I may try a few of the tricks, and I'll definitely re-read to ensure I didn't miss anything.
