I loved Julie Schumacher's Dear Committee Members when it came out a few years ago, and her latest installment The Shakespeare Requirement was even funnier. Dear Committee Members won her the Thurber Prize for American Humor, making her the first woman to win. So of course, people came to her to find out the secrets of her comedy. Her secret? She doesn't think she's funny.
Spoiler: I do.
She wrote up her thoughts on being thought of as funny but not being funny here, thanks to LitHub.
Oh, and read her books. Trust me on that.
