Comedian Louis C.K. once said “Everything that’s difficult you should be able to laugh about.”  But just about  any comedian that’s graced a stage, performed on TV, or even sent a tweet has probably felt the same way.

Rob Delaney knows something about those things. A few of those things.

But especially the difficult and laughing part. Because he’s experienced the former and helped us experience the latter.

He’s written a book about it, called ‘Mother. Wife. Sister. Human. Warrior. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban. Cabbage.”

He joined KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis in the studio to talk about fitting humor into 140 characters or less.
