The Past, Present and Future of Humor with Robert Mankoff – McCloskey Speaker Series

August 20, 2014

This event features a conversation with Robert Mankoff, Cartoon Editor of The New Yorker. More than 950 of his cartoons have been published in the magazine including their best-selling cartoon (captioned “No, Thursday’s out. How about never – is never good for you?”). The line also serves as the title to his newest book, a memoir released in March 2014. Mankoff wrote The Naked Cartoonist: A New Way to Enhance Your Creativity (2002) and edited The Complete Cartoons of The New Yorker (Black Dog Leventhal), the best-selling coffee-table book featuring all 68,647 cartoons ever published in The New Yorker since its debut, in 1925.
