Bob Mankoff : Anatomy of a New Yorker Cartoon
The New Yorker receives around 1,000 cartoons each week;
it only publishes about 17 of them.
In this hilarious, fast-paced, and insightful talk,
the magazine's longstanding cartoon editor
and self-proclaimed "humor analyst" Bob Mankoff
dissects the comedy within just some of the "idea drawings"
featured in the magazine, explaining what works, what doesn't, and why.
