Why Legal Humour

Marcel has published numerous humourous articles in a variety of legal and non legal publications in Canada and the U.S. including The Toronto Star, The Globe And Mail, Stitches (The Journal of Medical humour), Doctor's Review, Dentist's Guide, The Canadian Lawyer, Law Times, (Washington) The Pennsylvania Lawyer, The California Lawyer, New Jersey Lawyer, Briefly Speaking (Ontario Bar Association), The Litigator (Ontario Trial Lawyers Association), The Toastmaster and others.

While at university he wrote freelance comedy sketches for CBC radio and television programs, such as "Funny You Should Say That", which frequently featured noted comedy guests including Harvey Korman, Jonathan Winters and Lily Tomlin.

He has keen insight into human nature and this made him a hit while he practiced stand up comedy at Yuk Yuks and other comedy clubs for a period of five years, sharing the stage with the likes of Rick Moranis, Howie Mandel, and Jim Carrey.

He has also written freelance comedy for comedian Dave Broadfoot and for the popular CBC radio program, "Royal Canadian Air Farce".

His most recent opus is a hilarious and thought provoking book entitled Birth, Death and other Trivialities, which is a humourous philosophical look at the human condition.

Marcel Strigberger is uniquely qualified to deal with life's so called serious issues in a whimsical and entertaining manner. And he's a lot more fun to read and to listen to than Rene Descartes or Jean Paul Sartre.


“Marcel’s sense of humour matched with his care for the human soul was inspiring”
