Past Session (April 7, 2021)

Speaker: Meigs Glidewell

Subject: The World of Funny

Synopsis: Meigs recounted her adventures in
“The World of Funny.” She sold her first joke in 1967,
and over the next few decades sold greeting card ideas,
cartoon gags, cartoons, and did standup in Boston.

She talked about writing and selling jokes,
great books about the history of humor, 
how to write a joke, how to improve your joke
and wisecrack delivery, and will touch on what
humor researchers tell us about laughter.
