There are countless books on the market about managing your career, getting started in the working world or finding a job. Most of them are as dry as burnt toast. However, there is a new book out that I just read on these very topics which I thoroughly enjoyed. It’s “How to Succeed in Business without Really Crying, Lessons from a Life in Comedy” by Carol Leifer.
I must admit I love comedy and wanted to read this memoir to learn more about the author, whom I have always admired. Carol Leifer is a perennial comedy All-Star and a trailblazer for women in comedy. In her 40 years in the business, she has written and/or produced for such hits as Seinfeld, SNL, The Larry Sanders Show, Ellen, and Modern Family in addition to her stellar work as a standup comedian.
