Books Info:

Comedy Rules! free pdf This title features 150 essential rules from the award-winning co-writer of "Yes Minster" and "Yes Prime Minister", Hollywood movie director, producer, novelist and actor. A host of hugely enjoyable examples drawn from Lynn's varied and successful career bring these rules to life, covering everything from inspiration, collaboration and the Seven Deadly Sins to the perils of unmotivated comic business, pitching screenplays in LA, sexist jokes and lunch with the Inland Revenue. Along the way, we meet a cast of luminaries including Leonard Rossiter, John Landis, Nigel Hawthorne, Paul Eddington, Jack Rosenthal and Jonathan's long-time co-writer, Antony Jay. As we travel with him from his first digs in Coventry to the sushi bars of Hollywood, "Comedy Rules" offers an enlightening journey into the world of comedy and an indispensible companion to the elusive art of its creation.
