Poking a Dead Frog Explains the Joke and Makes It Funny

Source: The Stranger

The only thing worse than repeating a joke to death is pulling the joke apart in an attempt to figure out how it works. That’s probably why Mike Sacks named his book of interviews with comedy writers Poking a Dead Frog; to tempt fate and to acknowledge the impossibility of dissecting humor. Somehow, Dead Frog is a lively, funny collection of interviews about the process of comedy that doesn’t brutalize the joke to death. Sacks interviews some of the best i ...

The producers

Source: Spectator Magazine

Stars, playwrights and even set designers are constantly being lionised in the papers. But why not producers? They, after all, are the ones who choose the plays, the stars, and then make it all happen. Duncan Weldon and Paul Elliott are two veteran cigar chompers who’ve been in the business for 45 years. They’ve made and lost a packet, over and over again. They never seem to learn. Like all producers, they love their wives almost as much as they love a hit. Over lunch in the West End ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
