028 - John Vorhaus - Author

Does being born short shape your destiny? Ever wonder what a Russian version of the show Married with Children would be like? What does it take to be funny? Comedy writer and author of the Comic Toolbox, John Vorhaus, has some insights on all this and more.

Jeniffer and Chad talk with John Vorhaus about what it takes to be a good comic writer and how some of those things may be inborn. They discuss everything from his writing process, and his experience teaching comedy writing all over the world, to ultimate frisbee, poker, and dumb jokes. And, yes, there really was a Russian version of Married with Children. John worked on that show and learned some valuable lessons about how comedy isn't always universal. So, knowing your audience is key.
