About Funny Thing Is

I wrote my first play, a comedy, over thirty years ago. Ever since I first heard an audience laugh at one of my lines, I was hooked, not just on the experience, but on trying to understand what comedy is and how it works.

Comedy is one of the most complex of human experiences. My thoughts on the subject are always evolving, as comedy is always evolving along with humanity.

My Work

Here are some of the things I've written.


"Imagination in reverse is Memory."


"Every journey to enlightenment is a comedy"


“No one outside a marriage can know what happens inside. And no one inside can know either. But this is how I imagine it.”
