Can serious poetry be funny? Chaucer and Shakespeare would say yes, and so do the authors of these 187 poems that address timeless concerns but that also include comic elements.
Beginning with the Beats and the New York School and continuing with both marquee-name poets and newcomers, Seriously Funny ranges from poems that are capsized by their own tomfoolery to those that glow with quiet wit to ones in which a laugh erupts in the midst of terrible darkness.
Most of the selections were made in the editors’ battered compact car, otherwise known as the Seriously Funny Mobile Unit. During the two years in which Barbara Hamby and David Kirby made their choices, they’d set out with a couple of boxes of books in the back seat, and whoever wasn’t driving read to the other. When they found that a poem made both of them think but laugh as well, they earmarked it.
Readers will find a true generosity in these poems, an eagerness to share ideas and emotions and also to entertain. The singer Ali Farka Touré said that honey is never good when it’s only in one mouth, and the editors of Seriously Funny hope its readers find much to share with others.
The smooth grooves of the Jon Lehning Trio provided a new twist to yesterday’s UB Employees Campaign for the Community celebration. And the announcement that a few donations earlier that day helped the UB campaign exceed its goal was music to the ears of the dozens of faculty and staff in attendance. For this campaign year, UB set a goal of $875,000. As of Wednesday, the more than 2,400 UB employees who donated had raised $875,118, campaign chair Marsha Lewis happily reported at the start of the celebration. “I’m so darn excited, I cannot stand it. ” Lewis, dean of the School of Nursing, exclaimed before making the announcement. The annual campaign celebration had been held in Bansal Atrium in Davis Hall on North Campus each of the past two years, with no live music. The generosity of the UB community is astonishing,” said Provost Charles Zukoski. “We set stretch goals this year and we reached them. UB employees have raised nearly $18 million for more than 2,800 United Way agencies since the university’s campaign began in 1976. UB’s campaign is among the top three in Western New York. Robert Bennett, chancellor emeritus of the New York State Board of Regents and a former United Way CEO, said the time will soon come when the total raised by these three entities reaches $3 million in one year. “The campaign, for me, translates into impact — impact in this very precious community,” said Michael Weiner, a UB alumnus and president and CEO of the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County. “The generosity of the UB workforce means community-based organizations are receiving the support that they need to transform the lives of those most in need. And for those contributing to the United Way, you can be assured that you are paying for results in the areas of education, financial stability and health and wellness. In her opening remarks, Lewis thanked the more than 200 UB employees who serve as campaign liaisons — whose job includes holding fundraisers and generating excitement and participation within their units — as well as the campaign steering committee. Lewis singled out Dan Kelly of the Office of the President and Amber Winters of the Division of University Communications for their efforts, and offered praise for the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County’s Rema Hanash. She never, ever tires,” Lewis said of Hanash. Lewis also thanked the following faculty and staff who served as the “Faces. Source: www.buffalo.edu

The information herein was accumulated of fifty some odd years. The collection process started when TV first came out and continued until today. The books are in alphabetical order and cover shows from the 1940s to 2010. The author has added a brief explanation of each show and then listed all the characters, who played the roles and for the most part, the year or years the actor or actress played that role. Also included are most of the people who created the shows, the producers, directors, and the writers of the shows. These books are a great source of trivia information and for most of the older folk will bring back some very fond memories. I know a lot of times we think back and say, "Who was the guy that played such and such a role?" Enjoy!
