Comedian David Misch

The Chicago Public Library welcomes David Misch for a discussion on his book Funny: The Book — Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Comedy.

Ripped from the pages of his award-eligible book Misch presents "The History of Ha!" a some-holds-barred survey of absolutely everything funny that's ever happened. From ancient tricksters to modern family, Misch looks at what comedy is, where it comes from and where it's going.
