After graduating from Pomona College, David moved to Boston, where his song “Somerville” was released nationally by Philo Records. He was named “Best Comedian In Boston” by Boston Magazine. Funny: The Book is an entertaining look at the art of comedy, from its historical roots to the latest scientific findings, with diversions into the worlds of movies-Buster Keaton and the Marx Brothers), television-The Office, prose-Woody Allen, Robert Benchley, theater-The Front Page, jokes and stand-up comedy-Richard Pryor, Steve Martin, as well as personal reminiscences from the author's experiences on TV programs such as Mork and Mindy. With allusions to the not- always-funny Carl Jung, George Orwell and Arthur Koestler, Funny: The Book explores the evolution, theories, principles, and practice of comedy, as well as the psychological, philosophical, and even theological underpinnings of humor.
