About

Humorist Finley Peter Dunne said, through one of his characters, that the role of the media is to "comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable."  

At ThinkingFunny.com, we agree, and add that the best humor and comedy, to quote satirist Jon Stewart, "has a point." Sure, silly slapstick can make you laugh. But better yet is the humor that makes you think, too..Comedy often is a tool to give hope to the downtrodden, spark action in the indifferent, and to speak truth to power

It's in this spirit that the team here at ThinkingFunny.com is mounting its first Conference & Workshop to promote socially conscious comedy. We encourage you to join us in this effort.

ThinkingFunny.com's lead organizer is Robb Lightfoot. Robb has graduate degrees in both speech communication and event management. He's spent decades teaching and coaching college students in both the performing arts and journalism.

His screenplay, "One Little Indian," was a top-ten finalist is the Writer's Digest Screenwriting Competition.
