Acclaimed Comedian Visits Local Library

How about a little humor to make this dreary winter weather feel like eighty degrees of sunshine? Well, that is exactly what the Anniston Public Library provided its community earlier today when comedian and author Darryl Littleton came to town. Littleton visited the Anniston Public Library to show the director’s cut of his documentary entitled, "Why We Laugh", which made its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009 and on Showtime in February 2010. He also discussed his latest book “How To Be Funny” and took time to share a little live stand-up. Littleton's first book, "Black Comedians on Black Comedy" in 2006 chronicles the history of African-American comedy and features interviews with one hundred twenty-five of the industry's biggest stars. This prestigious work is a mainstay in libraries throughout the country.
