How often have you looked at a New Yorker cartoon and wondered how in the world someone came up with it? Here’s a chance to get your questions answered and learn about the inside workings of the magazine’s fabled “idea drawings.” Join us for a fun-filled evening with Bob Mankoff as he delves into the nature of humor and how it translates to the page. Click here to enter the JBFC’s own caption contest featuring the original cartoon by Mankoff himself!

Q&A Bob Mankoff submitted more than 500 cartoons before his first was published in The New Yorker in 1977. Since then, more than 800 have appeared in the magazine. Cartoon editor since 1997, he created The New Yorker’s popular caption contest.

Get a leg up on the competition! Mankoff’s new memoir, How About Never—Is Never Good for You? My Life in Cartoons, will be available for sale in our lobby and at the Village Bookstore starting in the weeks before the event. Mankoff will sign books that night.
