David Misch (davidmisch.com) is a veteran comedy writer. In his long career, he has worked on a Muppet movie, "Police Squad!", "Mork and Mindy" and lots, lots more. He's also a student of comedy. A few years ago, he published "Funny: The Book," a quick and funny survey of comedy through the ages.
On May 8, Smithsonian Associates is hosting David's chat about the history of comedy. We're gearing up for that event by talking about David's comedy career and some of his thoughts on the nature of humor. A fascinating chat with a fascinating guy!
