I wouldn’t mind spending a day or two in the shoes of Mike Sacks.
During the day—and probably quite a few nights—he is a mild-mannered writer for Vanity Fair magazine.
When he’s not doing that, he’s been interviewing some of the smartest, funniest writers around for his new book, And Here’s the Kicker: Conversations with 21 Top Humor Writers On Their Craft.
Mike Sacks Audio Excerpt: “A lot of them are shy and socially awkward. They get used to you and know you do your research. But if I met them at a party, it would have been a car wreck.”
You can LISTEN to this interview with MIKE SACKS, Vanity Fair writer and author of AND HERE’S THE KICKER, by clicking the audio player above!
As a writer myself, this book was irresistible to me; the chance to eavesdrop on Sacks’ Q and A with the guys—and one woman—behind everything from “The Office,” Borat and “Saturday Night Live” to MAD magazine, The Onion and M*A*S*H.
Even if you’re not a writer, this is a rich vein to mine for laughs and insight into your favorite pop culture icons.
