Do I amuse you?  Isla Fisher (Marge in Charge – HarperCollins), John Hodgman (Vacationland: True Stories from Painful Beaches  – Viking), and Denis Leary (Why We Don't Suck - Crown Archetype) represent a spectrum of comedians who excel on the big screen, the small screen, and on the page.  During this stage talk, they’ll explore the quirks, the ups, and even the downs of their lives that fuel their laughter and led them to write such a diverse array of books.  James West, Senior Digital Editor of Mother Jones, will moderate.
