When we first thought of doing a line of humor cards and notebooks, we realized that we needed go to the comedy experts. That’s why we’re grateful to have award-winning David Crowe as our friend and guide into the stand-up comedy world.
David considers the Frank & Funny cards and notebooks another great venue for the touring comics. He says, “What I like about this line is that it doesn’t use funny pictures or graphics. They really let the imagination of the reader loose... and that’s what stand-ups do for a living.”
We’re lucky to have more than 50 stand-up comedians from all across the country—with new comics added every season.
And when we asked them about why they like writing for the line, here’s what they had to say:
"Having my own greeting card means that something weird and silly I wrote has become intimately involved in the lives of thousands of strangers, which makes me feel grateful, but also a little awkward and anxious.”
“I’ve been thinking about it and what I like about writing for greeting cards is that it allows me to voice jokes that I like, but might never work as live performance bits. When you read them, it changes the tone. Just the mere turning of the page to see what's inside gives the reader the pause the joke needs to work.”
"It's great having a greeting card. Now I can tell people I'm a published author."
“Words can't describe how cool it is to have my own greeting card. Seriously. I have no words. I'm saving them for the next greeting card.”
Thank you, Patti! We can't wait to see more from you and all of the comedians in the seasons ahead.
