“My brother Pete and I get asked all the time by young writers about our philosophy of comedy. We usually just say “try to make your comedy funny”. But from now on I’ll just tell those annoying little suck-ups to read your book. It’s all in there.”

     — Bobby Farrelly, Writer/Director, There’s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber

ENDORSEMENTS:

 

“I’ve always been told – and have told others – funny can’t be taught. After reading Steve Kaplan’s thoughtful, informative and yes, funny book – I stand corrected. A great read for anyone wanting to break into the comedy game. And for those already in the game, a breezy, welcome jolt of education and inspiration.”

     —Peter Tolan, The Larry Sanders Show, Analyze This

 

“Great job! Everybody really loved your seminar! You’ve completely made a whole new group of friends here at Dreamworks.”

     — John Tarnoff, VP at Dreamworks

 

“Steve Kaplan was a very important influence on me as a young performer and writer. Many of his techniques for analyzing a comedy scene I still use to this day. Although, I make sure I never give him credit.”

     — Steve Skrovan, Writer/Producer for Everybody Loves Raymond

 

“The material he covered confirmed some things we had only guessed at and also opened new doors. There were several moments when his observations rang bells, lit bulbs, threw switches. Simple human truths are often like that. We slap our foreheads and say, ‘I knew that – why did I never think it?’ Wise men like Kaplan tell us things written in our DNA.”

     — Tim Ferguson – Writer/ Producer

 

“My classes in London were a tremendous hit and your Hidden Tools were
a big part of it. Thanks to taking your intensive, I had a terrific framework to build my class around. I came to your intensive to see if comedy could be taught, and learned; and I came away with the assurance that it can. I now have so many valuable tools that will forever effect my teaching, directing and performing. I don’t look at comedy the same way anymore, and because of you, I am a better artist.”

     — Peter Michael Marino, Actor, Writer, Teacher.

 

“I really enjoyed this weekend, thank you. I thought I was going to hate it because I’ve always thought no one can teach how to do comedy. I was wrong.”

     — Josh Thomas, “Just Like Me

 

Kaplan’s former students have written or co-written:

Sex and the City, Everybody Loves Raymond, Big Love, King of Queens, Analyze This, The Comeback, Friends, Fun with Dick and Jane, ‘Til Death, Saturday Night Live, The Daily Show, and hundreds of others.
