Conversations: Al Gini, "The Importance of Being Funny"

The Importance of Being Funny

Al Gini is a professor of business ethics and the author of numerous books on issues in contemporary American culture. For over 27-years he has been the “Resident Philosopher” on Chicago’s public radio station, WBEZ and he can also be heard on WGN in Chicago. On this edition of Conversations, he joins me to talk about his latest book, The Importance of Being Funny: Why We Need More Jokes in our Lives. He discusses the historical and contemporary role of the Court Jester, and why he believes we are living in a golden age of comedy.
