    "Comedy is easy to pick up, yet hard to master. Random Acts of Comedy is a collection of assorted plays that range in many types of humor from outright parody to twisting of classics to meta humor on the art of theatre. For anyone seeking to teach their students the art of humor, [this] is quite the excellent source for inspiration."

    Midwest Book Review

    "LOL."

    Aristotle

    "Random Acts of Comedy потому что надо смотреть вперед во время, когда мы сможем снять плоды."

    Anton Chekhov

    "To be [funny], or not to be [funny] -- that is the question... [Other play collections] suffer the slings and arrows of [not being funny] ...[Random Acts of Comedy] take arms against a sea of [unfunniness] and by opposing, [is the funniest play collection ever]."

    William Shakespeare
