Editor's Note

Author and Vanity Fair staffer Mike Sacks celebrates the release of his bible for budding comedy writers and comedy buffs, Poking a Dead Frog. Featuring interviews with some of the best comedy writers of the last six decades, including Paul Feig, Mel Brooks and Terry Jones, Sacks provides an insiders look at humor-filled entertainment. Also contained within are original essays by Amy Poehler, Diablo Cody and Marc Maron, and a character key from “Freaks and Geeks.” SNL alum Bill Hader, whose list of two hundred movies every comedy writer should see appears in the book, joins Sacks this evening for a conversation and some hobnobbing.
