Jeff NussbaumSacks…scored some great interviews, finding writers who could comment on—and in many cases created—virtually every comedic touchstone we reference today, including the Marx Brothers, "The Colbert Report," Woody Allen's movies, Mad magazine, "The Simpsons," "Saturday Night Live" and late-night talk shows. The real fun in this book comes less when the writers talk about their craft and more when they talk about their careers, experiences, disappointments and favorite jokes. That's when you feel like you've been ushered into an exclusive fraternity (and it really is a fraternity—only two women are interviewed) and exposed to the admiration and competition inherent in any club.
