comment How do I keep the plot interesting in a humorous book?
See, I agree with @Lynn's comment. You haven't said what you're writing, but in Voltaire's "Candide" he was making fun of the concept that we lived in the "best of all possible worlds" and "everything happened for a reason". Despite all the horrible things that befell poor Candide, he was incredibly happy and upbeat because he subscribed to Doctor Pangloss' view that we lived in the best possible world. It was funny because it made the idea overblown.
