Salon: A Man Walks into a Bar: On Writing Funny

  • Lighthouse Writers 1515 Race Street Denver, CO, 80206 United States (map)

Panelists: Steve Almond, Jenny Shank, Erika Krouse, Seth Brady Tucker

Attempts at comedy can bring readers and audiences together, but they can also push buttons, especially in an age where a hastily thrown-off line can become fodder for social media. How do you “write funny” without playing it too safe or tumbling off the cliff of political correctness? Panelists will discuss this as well as share a bit of their own humor writing and that of their comic inspirations.

A catered meal and beverages are included in ticket price, available starting at 5:00 PM. Panel discussion begins at 6:00 PM.
