As an Emmy Award-winning comedy writer, I am intrigued by Mike Sacks’ book Poking a Dead Frog: Conversations with Today’s Top Comedy Writers, which features interviews with the best in the biz. He spoke with Glen Charles (Cheers, Taxi) and Adam McKay (Talladega Nights, Step Brothers). Sounds like a great insider baseball read.
Sacks has also contributed to Esquire magazine. This month’s issue is about fatherhood, and features a great interview with Jerry Seinfeld about the ‘burden’ of celebrity (or lack thereof) and Patton Oswald in a cheeky article called Fatherhood for Men. Both are worth checking out.
Have a great Memorial Day weekend.
