Judd Apatow Humor Book

By Steveliu @charitablegift

Judd Apatow Humor BookJudd Apatow’s humor is certainly not for everyone, but that’s what makes him the perfect editor for I Found This Funny: My Favorite Pieces of Humor and Some That May Not Be Funny At All. In it, he compiles stories from as diverse humorists as Philip Roth, David Sedaris, Steve Martin, Nora Ephron, Jonathan Ames, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Conan O’Brien, Lorrie Moore, Paul Feig, Jonathan Franzen, Alice Munro, and many, many more.

It’s an interesting look into humor. It’s not meant to be a textbook or a deep study into the definition of humor. Instead, it puts together a lot of writing, from poems to short stories to essays, that at one time or another has been considered “funny” and lets you decide.

Proceeds from the book will go to 826 National, a nonprofit tutoring, writing, and publishing organization that promotes creative writing to kids ages 6 to 18.
