Kat Timpf’s first book ‘You Can’t Joke About That’ makes the case for using humor to address some of life’s most important topics
Comedian and libertarian commentator KAT TIMPF’s first book, You Can't Joke About That, asks what happens when we can’t joke about some of the most important stuff in life. In a 2019 study, 40% of people reported censoring themselves out of fear that voicing their views would alienate them from the people they care about most. In You Can't Joke About That, Timpf shows why much of the way we talk about sensitive subjects is wrong. We’ve created all the wrong rules. We push ourselves into unnecessary conflicts when we should feel like we’re all in this together.
Hilariously and movingly, Timpf shows us we can find healing through humor regarding things you probably don't want to bring up in polite conversation. In both her writing and sought-after speaking events, Kat uses comedy and satire to make unforgettable connections.
