Farouche Books, Feb 1, 2007 - Humor - 111 pages
Cross Steve Martin and Jack Handey's 'jerk humor' with a touch of Steve Wright's surreal one-liners and balance the macabre perversity of a classic Charles Addams cartoon with the dumb-sweetness of Mitch Hedberg and Demetri Martin and what do you get? Rising 'twenty-something-thirty-something' favorite, Dan Liebert, the Verbal CartoonistOnly a few months after becoming a weekly regular on McSweeney's internet Tendency, Dan Liebert was signed on to record his 'Verbal Cartoons' for weekly national broadcast on NPR's youth-oriented Fair Game. Even in manuscript, his first book has been a 'let me read it next!' favorite in New York's 'downtown' comedy scene where he first honed his craft. Steering clear of politics, celebrities and the topic of the week, he opts for the timeless topics such as chives, bongos and his boyhood hero Maria Winkelmann, the 18th Century feminist astronomer.
