I am Ken Jennings. I was on Jeopardy! for six months a very long time ago. My new book about comedy is called PLANET FUNNY. AMA!
Hi Reddit! It's been years since I did one of these, but I hope it's like riding a bike (in that I will be surrounded by bigger kids who chase and bully me for hours).
My new book is called PLANET FUNNY: HOW COMEDY TOOK OVER OUR CULTURE, and it's a history of comedy as well as a nervous look at how we are now so waist-deep in jokes that it's almost oppressive.
If you listen to podcasts, musician John Roderick and I spin tales about historical oddities like White House pets and Milli Vanilli to the future residents of post-apocalyptic Earth in our time capsule podcast OMNIBUS.
EDIT: Thanks for the questions, everyone. I'm a little disappointed we didn't get to talk more about Rampart, but oh well. If you enjoy comedy or super-provocative takes on modern life!!! check out Planet Funny at your library or local independent bookstore or big evil e-retailer. If you enjoy podcasts, subscribe to Omnibus right now! If you enjoy none of those things, please let me know what your hobbies are so I can tailor future projects to you as an individual!
