Funny Business – The Film

This award-winning film which debuted in 2010 travels into the studios and lives of 11 celebrated New Yorker magazine cartoonists to help answer the time-honored question, “How do they do that?” And maybe more importantly, “WHY do they do that day after day when rejection is the norm?”

FUNNY BUSINESS is the first feature-length film to reveal the artists behind our favorite cartoons. Its been broadcast nationally on local PBS stations including WNET (Channel 13). Initially fueled by the filmmaker’s personal relationship with cartooning legend Charles Addams and her mother’s desire to be just like Addams, this film is a delightfully candid and intimate journey that shows the heart beneath the gags.
