Ben Karlin is an enabler - he is funny AND he helps other people be funny. He was editor of the satirical newspaper, "The Onion" back in the 90s. More recently, he was Head Writer and Executive Producer of "The Daily Show" with Jon Stewart, and Executive Producer of "The Colbert Report."
Now he's enabling lovers and the lovelorn to wallow in their past failures with his collection of essays, "Things I've Learned from Women Who've Dumped Me."
He's on "Fair Game" to talk to Faith about it.
"Fair Game" is a satirical news and entertainment, weekday evening program. Hosted by Faith Salie, possibly the only Rhodes Scholar who performs comedy intentionally, "Fair Game" covers the important stories of the day and features newsmaker and celebrity interviews, live music and regular appearances by the country's best comedians.
