Nobody I know is funnier, smarter, or has a wider breadth of references than my friend Jonathan Shapiro. This book is a bit of a miracle: informative, insightful, poetic, and funny. —Paul Reiser, comedian, actor, and bestselling author Using famous real-life court transcripts, television scripts, and story after story, Lawyers, Liars, and the Art of Storytelling shows the reader how to get their message across and the result they want using the time-tested elements and basic structure of great stories. Part how-to manual, part memoir, always entertaining and never lecture, this book provides storytelling lessons gleaned from years of trial practice and television writing, wrapped in—what else?—great stories.

Anger at Lieberman Turns ‘Evil’

Posted on Apr 5, 2006
Dr. Evil and Joe Lieberman
From crooksandliars.com (Illustration: Blair Golson)

Sen. Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) apparently shares at least one character trait with Dr. Evil: a proclivity for “shushing” people.

Sen. Joe Lieberman, the most conservative Democrat in the Senate, shushed an unhappy crowd so many times at a recent appearance that it reminded a blogger of a certain infamous “shusher.” (video)


From Crooks and Liars :

Reader B: “I was at the Jefferson Jackson Bailey dinner on Thursday 3/30, and Joe Shh-ed the crowd 4 times.  It reminded me a lot of Dr. Evil, so I made this short video.”
