‘Simpsons’ Mike Reiss, ‘Monkees’ Micky Dolenz and ‘Three’s Company’ Joyce DeWitt talk About Humor, “Comedy Is Hard” at Ivoryton Playhouse
But then again, sometimes it is. At least when you’re talking with some professionals who know their way around a yuck.
There’s Mike Reiss, a Bristol native, who is also a producer/writer of “The Simpsons,” among other comedic credits. There’s Joyce DeWitt, who starred in one of TV’s most popular sitcoms, “Three’s Company. There’s Micky Dolenz, who gave a devilish dash to the pop group “The Monkees,’ as well as the quartet’s own ’60s sitcom and a slew of stage comedies.
They were gathered around a table in a sunny rehearsal hall recently to discuss Reiss’s latest play, “Comedy Is Hard,” which premieres at the Ivoryton Playhouse, staged by its artistic director Jacqueline Hubbard.
