Humor has always been an essential part of North American aboriginal culture. This fact remained unnoticed by most settlers, however, since non-aboriginals just didn’t get the joke. For most of written history, a stern, unyielding profile of “the Indian” dominated the popular mainstream imagination. Indians, it was believed, never laughed. But Indians themselves always knew better. As an award-winning playwright, columnist, and comedy-sketch creator, Drew Hayden Taylor has spent 15 years writing and researching aboriginal humor. For Me Funny, he asked a noted cast of writers from a variety of fields — including such celebrated wordsmiths as Thomas King, Allan J. Ryan, Mirjam Hirch, and Tomson Highway — to take a look at what makes aboriginal humor tick. Their hilarious, enlightening contributions playfully examine the use of humor in areas as diverse as stand-up comedy, fiction, visual art, drama, performance, poetry, traditional storytelling, and education.
Reviews:
  • Wire
This was a gift for a friend. She raved about the author's writing.
  • ᵀᴴᴱ ᴼᴿᴵᴳᴵᴻᴬᴸ
Purchased as required reading for a class.
  • Thetahuginn
I was a bit disappointed in the book. I almost felt that it was a compilation of reviews of other books and if one had not read the cited books, it was not impactful. Perhaps I will read some of them and revisit this book at some time in the future.
  • The Sphinx of Driz
An interesting account of Native American written work interspersed with jokes. A good read.
