Shakespeare created Falstaff. Lily Tomlin created multiple characters. David Sedaris is his own humorous character. So is Nora Ephron. Lena Dunham. Dave Barry. Such characters delight, entertain, inspire, and inform readers.
This class considers a few questions when it comes to creating humorous characters, such as: "Does my character react to life humorously or use humor to navigate life?" "Does the humor provide relief, amusement, or share a truth?" "What actions, speech, likes, dislikes, and mannerisms make a character funny?"
