Mark your calendar. Fasten your seat belt. Get out your whoopee cushion. Author Mark Simmons, D6, will be our speaker, our entertainer, our thought-provoker, this coming Saturday, March 26, at 1:30 PM for our monthly D6 meeting on Zoom.
Mark knows how to use humor. He will read some of his “stuff.” He’ll be leading participatory exercises, including 1) asking members & guests to tell a favorite joke (short ones), 2) asking us why we like the joke, 3) what makes it funny, & 4) who the ideal audience is for that joke.
We’ll deconstruct humor—figuring out what makes it tick—and touch upon the challenges of writing humor during our latest pandemic.
Mark has asked me to ask you to be thinking about what (or maybe who) has made you laugh the hardest . . . and why.
