“I just moved,” reports comedian Wendy Liebman. “That took a lot out of me. I threw away a third of my stuff. Someone gave me that book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Basically it says get rid of everything that doesn’t bring you joy, so the first thing I did was throw the book away. I’m just doing my act for you.” She sounds apologetic, but all is good. As one of America’s most gifted joke writers, she’s welcome to fill an interview with jokes. Like many comics, she tweets out jokes. “I started tweeting out these joke bubble images so that people could retweet them,” she explains. “They have my name on them like, ‘I’m a writer. I write checks.’ Not very good, but they have my name at the bottom because I think with the internet there’s a lot of joke borrowing. I’ve seen some of my jokes show up in memes and cartoons. I think as comedians we don’t really have a way to copyright our jokes, so I’m going to have to write a novel. That way, no one can copy them.” 18+.
