Dani Klein Modisett discusses and signs Take My Spouse, Please

Vroman's Bookstore

695 E. Colorado, Pasadena, CA 91101


Dani Klein Modisett discusses and signs Take My Spouse, Please: How to Keep Your Marriage Happy, Healthy, and Thriving by Following the Rules of Comedy. This humorous take on marriage shows you how the true keys to marital bliss and success are surprisingly the same as the cardinal rules of comedy.  In love, as in comedy, timing is everything. One bad night doesn’t mean it’s time to quit. Have patience: great marriages, like a successful comedy career, take time. Turns out the cardinal rules of comedy have an uncanny resemblance to the rules of building a strong marriage. With humor and grace, Dani Klein Modisett shares a map for navigating your marriage through rough patches, bad jokes, and even nights when you bomb.  Take My Spouse, Please shows how thirteen tried-and-true rules of comedy, when applied to marriage, keep you and your spouse connected, enjoying each other, and getting through tough times. Along with anecdotes from well-known comedians, comedy writers, marriage counselors, and long-term spouses, Dani delivers the core premise: humor matters. (Trumpeter)
