    1. This book really opened my eyes to comedy writing being more formula based than I ever expected. I'll be able to use the techniques I've learned in this book to improve my own comedy writing. Enjoyed reading all funny quotes and skits in it as well.


    2. The author's discussion of comedy was useful and he is an authority, having been head writer for Bob Hope. Many of the steps laid out here as writing exercises were very pun centric and didn't appeal to me. Disappointing.


    3. I picked up “The New Comedy Writing Step by Step” because I wanted to introduce more humor into my writing, and I wanted a detour from my standard reading about the craft of writing (you know: characters, plots, arcs, etc. etc.). I'm glad I did.Before opening this book, I felt that comedy was something reserved for those I would classify as "comic geniuses." In my hand was a book written by a gifted comic writer—a Grandmaster, so to speak. And having read many books on the game of Chess, I [...]


    4. Some well-received novels employ the device of immersing the narrative in a richly detailed context that enable the narrator to spice the story up with hopefully fascinating insights into this 'hidden' world. Examples I have in mind are Life of Pi, where we learn about zookeeping; The Remains of the Day, where we learn about being a butler; Frøken Smillas fornemmelse for sne, where we learn about glaciology;The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, where we learn about 1940s superhero comi [...]


    5. Gene Perret shows his age in some of the examples he chooses (with the exception of Emo Philips who is a timelessly brilliant writer), but his advice is exactly what I need to hear. This book lays out actions to take to become a comedy writer, and it also reminds you that no one can take them for you but if you believe you have the potential, no one else can stop you from being successful.


    6. If you have ambitions to write comedy, this is a great primer. Perret's a comedy-writer who's written for the best of the best. He gives you step-by-step exercises that will have you writing solid stand-up material.


    7. A bit disappointed in the book. it came highly recommended, but I don t feel I learned anything I didn t really know already. I liked some of his excercises and anecdotes though. It took me a while to get through itn. It was an OK read.




    8. Some of it feels dated at times, but a great book. One of the best about comedy writing. Great ideas. Great advice. Interesting stories.
