    SplitSider: The Writer's Room

    There's a somewhat comedy related blog called SplitSider and they're running an interview series featuring comedy writers. I'll try to post future articles on this thread as they update the series. Or others can as well if they beat me too it.

    The first is John Mulaney discussing his writing process for both his stand-up and SNL!

    It hasn't been up long, but I really like SplitSider so far. Great, thoughtful, substantive posts from writers who clearly love comedy. I also like that they go beyond just reporting comedy news to include editorial and opinion pieces. It's good stuff.

    It's still not as interesting to me as Punchline is, but I like that they also talk about comedy outside of stand-up.

    I interviewed comedy writers Scott Jacobson (The Daily Show, Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk), Rob Kutner (The Daily Show, The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien), Mike Sacks (Vanity Fair, And Here's The Kicker, Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk), and a very funny new humorist named Hudson Hongo (whose work/name kept popping up during my research, so I just HAD to contact him) for Splitsider; the piece is called "Where Have All the Humorists Gone?, Part 2: Conversations with Modern Comedy Writers": http://bit.ly/cXPsfY

    Asked them about their influences, beginnings in humor writing, goals, and transitions to other media. Check it out.

    You can comment with your Twitter/Facebook profiles if you like the piece.
