New & Novel: Comedy Writing

Marc Maron just hosted President Obama on his WTF podcast last month (such a momentous event that Maron was still processing it during his next broadcast, which he called "The President Was Here", and he also created a special website to show pictures of the event). Every single episode of Seinfeld is streaming on Hulu, and Hulu celebrated by putting together a "Seinfeld Museum" for fans. Jon Stewart just ended his tenure on The Daily Show. Comedy and comedians - they are big news!

Comedians are not shy about putting pen to paper, either.  Here are some of the latest publishing ventures by some folks who regularly bring you the funny onscreen and on stage, with a couple of historical pieces thrown in for good measure.

Sick in the Head by Judd Apatow

Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari
