Hut Lewis hastens to add that that doesr/i mean they are renily hot-stuff gmr- men. Studying gng writing Is no monkey business. Students must dream up weekly scripts, assigned by Lewis to be modeled niter shows of such comedians as Henry Morgan Jack Benny, Bob Hope and Fred Allen. Then, at th c weekly class sessions the students read their scripts before the class. The institute has n unwritten code "Don't laugh too hard nt anybody else's gags." And that guarantees a dead -pan audience. Lewis tips into each script smothering cliches, injecting "punchy" linns and explaining how to anticipate niidlcnce reaction. "Guest lecturers" such as Bcrle and Goodman Ace give the class an intimate be- hmd-lhc-mike view of the comedian and his problems.
