Great resource

Anyone interested in enteranment writing professionally, comedy writing speciafically should find this to be an informative, entertaining and frank discussion with some of the greatest names you need to learn. These are the men and women who write late night shows, the Daily show, and a host of others. It's great mix of stories of success and more often failure that reflect the careers of American (and to a lessser exten Canadian) top men and women in the field of writing comedy.
