A firm believer that laughter is necessary – and that we don’t do it nearly enough, Cartoonist Bob Mankoff shows us how to bring humor to every conceivable situation, and explains why it is so important to do so.
Available for speaking engagements or half-day and full-day seminars, Bob’s topics range from a behind-the-scenes look at the New Yorker to enhancing your creativity, persevering at what you love, and bringing humor to the workplace. His multimedia presentations use everything from pictures, videos, cartoons, and stories, to a cartoon-caption contest for your attendees.
Joining the New Yorker in 1977, Mankoff has contributed over 950 cartoons and published over 80,000 as cartoon editor – a role he will step down from this coming April. Mankoff will continue contributing cartoons to the magazine as well as continuing work on the forthcoming book, “The New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons.” The focus of the 2015 HBO documentary Very Semi-Serious, he can also be seen on the New Yorker web series, “The Cartoon Lounge.”
