Great Comedy Films

Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Funny Movies

Author Chris LaMont

The scandalous world of Great Comedy Films is torn wide-open, with sordid tales of sex, money, drugs, power, prostitution, hedonism and shenanigans that make this book a "must-buy." Now that we have your attention ...

This weighty tome in your hands, which has aspirations of selling more copies than the Holy Bible, gives you everything you need to know about "comedy" in the "world" of "motion pictures" — we're talking history, notable personalities, important films, useless trivia and we're breaking down comedy techniques — all so you can impress your friends, family and that special someone across the room at the singles bar when it's closing time.

Enjoying comedy films — with this book as a guide — is the key to living a happy, balanced, cultured and knowledgeable life. What more can you ask for? And the font is really big and there are pictures! We've pulled out all the stops to make this the best book that our publisher could afford on an extremely low budget.

Welcome to "Great Comedy Films: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Funny Movies." It’s the second edition — so you know we did something right!
