Healing Through Comedy in Daily Life

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What happens when we acknowledge comedy as a serious endeavor towards daily healing? This will be a performative presentation that prompts idea generation from the audience. Comedic styles will focus on humor in opposition to masculine/capitalist forms that dominate the field (like stand-up). We will present oppositional forms of humor as well as generate ideas for enacting your own humor through a series of comedic videos from our two presenters.
