Salt Lake City, UT – Tuesday on RadioWest we're talking about a new PBS documentary - this time a subject not easy to condense let alone understand. It's about the funny business of America: the story and history of American comedy. The producers Laurence Maslon and Michael Kantor have tried to create what they're calling a cumulative portrait to understand what makes humor in this country unique and to trace the way comedy works and evolves in American life and culture. It's called Make 'Em Laugh.

Make 'Em Laugh premieres Wednesday, January 14th at 7:00 p.m. on KUED Channel 7. For listings in your area, click here
