    This epic poem, The Divine Comedy, by Dante Alighieri is considered by many to be the greatest lyric composition ever written. "Comedy" is used here in its classical sense--to indicate a story which begins in suspense and ends well. We start out with the author gone astray in a dark wood and assaulted by metaphorical agents of spiritual adversity. He is saved by Virgil who guides Dante through the nine circles of Hell down to the center of the earth where Satan is held restrained. They then ascend to the Mountain of Purgatory and climb the seven terraces which correspond to the seven deadly sins. The culmination of this journey is the Garden of Eden beyond which Virgil cannot go because, as a pagan, he is a permanent resident of Limbo, the first circle of Hell. Beatrice, fashioned from a woman Dante loved and lost, becomes Dante's second guide. She steers him through the nine spheres of Heaven from where Dante reaches a place beyond physical existence and comes face-to-face with God who grants him comprehension of the Divine and human nature. When we look deeper into the journey, we see a complex analysis of the progress of each individual soul toward God and mankind's progress toward peace on earth.

    A penetrating study of ordinary people resisting the Nazi occupation-and, true to its title, a dark comedy of wartime manners-Comedy in a Minor Key tells the story of Wim and Marie, a Dutch couple who first hide a Jew they know as Nico, then must dispose of his body when he dies of pneumonia. This novella, first published in 1947 and now translated into English for the first time, shows Hans Keilson at his best: deeply ironic, penetrating, sympathetic, and brilliantly modern, an heir to Joseph Roth and Franz Kafka. In 2008, when Keilson received Germany's prestigious Welt Literature Prize, the citation praised his work for exploring "the destructive impulse at work in the twentieth century, down to its deepest psychological and spiritual ramifications." Published to celebrate Keilson's hundredth birthday, Comedy in a Minor Key-and The Death of the Adversary, reissued in paperback-will introduce American readers to a forgotten classic author, a witness to World War II and a sophisticated storyteller whose books remain as fresh as when they first came to light.

    Hilarious stuff here, friends and neighbors. And the laughs aren't just aimed at folks who think Caddyshack is where ma and pa park the car. 'Cause the little secret behind the #1 comedy concert of the past two years is that its topics - marriage, kids, traveling - are so universal. And so wackily warped when seen through the perspective of standout stand-ups.This concert movie captures the fellas on stage as well as during off hours. So hunker down and catch each of the comics in a solo bit. Then see them in a kind of 4-man comedy jam. Jeff Foxworthy's redneck , Bill Engvall's Here's Your Sign , Ron White's bad-boy tales, Larry the Cable Guy's bumpkin yarns - they're all here. And all gall-durn funny!

    An enthusiast's look at American comedies and the physical comedians who made them great. Legendary screen comedian Jerry Lewis once said, "The premise of all comedy is a man in trouble." The films that endeared Lewis and others to us hinged on the physical assault of their hero, the pie in the face or slip on the banana peel that reduced the movie star to the level of the audience. Comedy Is a Man in Trouble presents the legacy of physical humor from the performances of vaudeville actors and circus clowns-who coined the term "slapstick" by playfully and noisily beating each other with wooden paddles-to its ongoing popularity today in the films of Jim Carrey and the Farrelly brothers. Alan Dale's personal and passionate tour of movie slapstick begins with an original assessment of the work of famed silent clowns Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, and Buster Keaton. Dale rejects the long-held notion that the talent of these comedians lies in their ability to combine comedy and tragedy and suggests that their riotous imaginations and their physical grace revealed greatness in comedy for its own sake. A decade later the Marx Brothers exploited the new technology of sound film in their fast-paced verbal exchanges-and, in doing so, invented a verbal form of slapstick later exploited by directors such as Preston Sturges and Howard Hawks. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, Jerry Lewis energetically revised and combined the physical and verbal humor of his predecessors for a new generatio

    Having appeared in more than 200 films and widely considered to be one of cinema's most respected comic geniuses, Harold Lloyd was one of Hollywood's first true movie stars. With a career that spanned more than 34 years, Harold Lloyd essentially created the feature-length film. Best known for his comedy movies including The Freshman, Speedy and Safety Last! -- which features one of Hollywood's most iconic images of Harold Lloyd hanging from the hands of a giant clock -- the influence of his physical comedy is evident in the performances of many of today's leading actors. His trademark combination of physical skill, well-developed characters and keen comic timing have influenced such acclaimed talents as Lucille Ball, Jim Carrey, Dustin Hoffman and Johnny Depp.

    "a work on the art and craft of comedy as important in its own way as works by Stanislavski and Chekhov" – Oxford Theatre CompanionIn 1939, a young, inexperienced actor wrote to a famous actress of his acquaintance, asking for advice on playing comedy. She responded enthusiastically, and they corresponded variously over the next year. The Craft of Comedy, a record of these exchanges, soon emerged as one of the few classic texts in the field of comedy acting.This major new edition takes a brilliant book and makes it better. Editor Robert Barton has devised extensive supplementary material, including:An introduction to the correspondents, the culture of the time, and the evolution of their book;Summaries, definitions, and exercises and practice scenes for readers wishing to explore Athene Seyler’s invaluable advice;Photographs, additional essays by Seyler, and a guide to easily accessed video clips of her performing.Seyler’s lucid guidance, and Barton’s scrupulous editorship, ensure this legendary work’s rightful status is restored: as one of the great practical guides to the craft of comedy, and an essential resource for actors and students of acting.
