Stephen Hoover Releases Sequel To Bestselling Comedy Book


WEBWIRE – Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Stephen Hoover, the creator of the #1 comedy writing ranked book on Amazon, “The Joke’s On You: How To Write Comedy,” is proud to announce the launch of a sequel, entitled “What’s So Funny? Theories of Comedy.”  The book explores comedic theories, and digs deep into what makes people laugh.
 
“What’s So Funny? Theories of Comedy” covers theories including the superiority theory, incongruity theory, benign violation theory, and the science of laughter.  The book is ideal for those who write comedy, perform, or are a fan of comedy.  Everyone finds different things funny.  What an elderly woman will laugh at may differ from what her grandson finds amusing.  Spouses, siblings, cousins, and every person in the world all have different opinions of what is funny.  Humor is strange, and difficult to define.  The book analyzes humor, and why all creatures on the planet have their own opinions of what is funny.  The people of Papua New Guinea have different humor than Canadians, for example.  Even within the same culture, humor differs, and of course, there can be a crossover as well.
 
The book shines a light on humor and comedy, and what it means to different people.  Different forms of comedy are covered, as well as theories of comedy from philosophers and researchers.  Additionally, the techniques of writing comedy are discussed.  The book will provide readers with a better grasp of what comedy is, and how to create it.  Laughing is an important component to decrease stress and improve health, and the book covers the need for laughter and different forms of comedy to make people laugh.
 
Author Stephen Hoover has been selling jokes to numerous publications and comedians for twenty years, and he has taught comedy and screenwriting classes at a local university.  He is a licensed attorney in private practice, and wrote the popular book, “The Joke’s On You: How To Write Comedy.”  As a practitioner of comedy, he hopes to spread his knowledge of humor and make the world a funnier place.
