Last week, film critic Eric D. Snider, a funny fellow himself, wrote a column for a film website about the Marx Brothers. The article referenced the Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker team that made a number of spoof comedies, including “Airplane!” (altogether now, “I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley”).
To Eric’s great delight, David Zucker read the column and sent him an e-mail, which Eric kindly passes along to us with Mr. Zucker’s permission. Very informative for those who study comedy, which, as it turns out, isn’t strictly about jokes (who knew?). Read Eric’s post here.
