There are a handful of very funny people who can share practical words of wisdom in clever and sometimes touching ways. I’ve seen Stephen Colbert and Conan O’Brien accomplished this (both in the addresses they delivered at Knox and Harvard, respectively, and in their course of their day-to-day work), and Jon Stewart, too. Tina Fey’s “Bossypants” is like a sustained high note of wit and hilarity that somehow manages to educate. Not only did I experience multiple outbursts of laughter – after a while, I stopped being embarrassed when these happened on the bus… or while I was proctoring an LSAT practice test – but I actually feel wiser for having read it.
