Make Em' Laugh
Just wanted to clue you loyal fans in on the new PBS documentary Make Em' Laugh, which starts tonight at 8pm EST. Their website describes it as "A six-hour comedy epic showcasing the most hilarious men, women, and moments in American entertainment and why they made us laugh." Sounds good to me.
The first two episodes air tonight with two more next Wednesday and the final two a week later. It's chock full of interviews of comedians, about comedians. No analysis from snooty professors or dusty historians, just memories and explanations from those who know humor best.
TONIGHT'S EPISODE: "Would Ya Hit a Guy with Glasses?: Nerds, Jerks, & Oddballs"
