And Here’s the Kicker: Mike Sacks’s Conversations With Humor Writers

McSweeney’s Internet Tendency contributor Mike Sacks’ book, And Here’s the Kicker: Conversations with 21 Top Humor Writers On Their Craft, is available in all bookstores. The figure “21” is a bit of a misnomer, as Sacks wanted 25 interviews to be included in the book. The publisher, however, felt otherwise. Why? Oh, money. What follows are interviews that were left out of the book. They were no more deserving of being cut than any of the others. So, if you will, please look at these conversations as special “bonus” features from the book.
