Audible Editor Reviews

The 92nd Street Y doesn't just host prime ministers, members of Congress, and religious leaders in their evening programs. The landmark institution also takes a lively interest in all things artistic. In this 2006 discussion, moderator Larry Davidson joins writers Adrianna Trigiani and Bill Persky to explore the role of truth in comedy. Though Trigiani is now known primarily as a novelist (Big Stone Gap series), she got her start writing for television sitcoms. Likewise, Bill Persky is an Emmy Award-winning television writer and the creator of That Girl, starring actress Marlo Thomas. All three participants are professionally funny people who enjoy talking all aspects of comedy and television.

    Story
    "Classic Entertainment--didn't want it to end!"
    Would you listen to Truthfully Speaking at the 92nd Street Y again? Why?

    Yes--the stories were real and so entertaining.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Adriana Trigiani--have heard her speak live numerous times and could listen to her for hours. The other speaker was very entertaining. It was fun to hear the inside "scoop" of writing for tv.
