"One of the many triumphs of [this book] apart from the not incidental fact that the jokes are so good that [Cohen] doesn't bother to compete with them--is that he never tries to sound more profound than the jokes he tells....Cohen gives us such a keen--and daunting--sense of what it is for a joke to misfire....that he makes you feel he is doing an unusual kind of philosophy. As though he has managed to turn J.L Austin into one of the Marx Brothers."Cohen, Ted is the author of 'Jokes Philosophical Thoughts on Joking Matters', published 2001 under ISBN 9780226112312 and ISBN 0226112314.
