Bob Mankoff

Robert Mankoff is the cartoon editor of The New Yorker. More than eight hundred of his cartoons have been published in The New Yorker in the past thirty years, including the best-selling New Yorker cartoon of all time. Mankoff says of cartooning:

"Your sense of humor is probably the sense you value most. That's certainly the case for me. Besides making life more enjoyable during good times and bearable during trying ones, having it, and honing helped me become cartoon editor of The New Yorker in 1997. Best job in the world, greatest professional day of my life—except for a day, twenty years earlier, when I sold my first cartoon to The New Yorker."

And what about the story of his becoming an experimental psychologist? Mankoff says: 

"I was so close to being a "doctor" that I could taste it, but it didn't taste good. My gift for laughter and my sense that the world was mad were rapidly dissipating, as I learned more and more about what I was less and less interested in. And my experimental animal, a rat, had no sense of humor at all."

Michael and Bob share what humor means to them and so much more.
