LCA PixHumor and Comedy are the driving force behind The Robert Benchley Society.  Every year we sponsor a Benchley Writing Contest in the Spring to encourage humor and comedy in the manner and tradition of the “Master of Nonsense” Robert Benchley.  One of the founders of The Algonquin Round Table, Benchley defined humor for a generation of writers in radio, movies and TV.  We hope to add to that legacy with our contest.  Here is one of Benchley’s earliest books “Love Conquers All“  and includes the winners of the first 10 years of Benchley Writing Contests.  Continue the hilarious work.  Join the Benchley Society.
