A Funny Way of Being Serious

Posted Tuesday, February 8, 2011

A Funny Way of Being Serious Comedy was once defined as a funny way of being serious. That's especially true with the art of the editorial cartoon. Tomorrow on the Sound of Ideas, we'll be joined by three local editorial cartoonists to talk about how they manage to say so much in such a simple way. They resonate in their simplicity on topics as diverse as the crisis in Egypt and billing woes at the local water department. But, as the print media changes, are editorial cartoons a dying art? Tuesday at 9:00 on 90.3.
