Ken Jennings - Planet Funny

Ken Jennings - Planet Funny

Presented by Book Passage at Book Passage, Sausalito

In Planet Funny, Ken Jennings explores this brave new comedic world and what it means — or doesn’t — to be funny in it now.

Tracing the evolution of humor from the caveman days to the bawdy middle-class antics of Chaucer to Monty Python’s game-changing silliness to the fast-paced meta-humor of The Simpsons, Jennings explains how we built our humor-saturated modern age, where lots of us get our news from comedy shows and a comic figure can even be elected President of the United States purely on showmanship.

Entertaining, astounding, and completely head-scratching, Planet Funny is a full taxonomy of what spawned and defines the modern sense of humor.
