Healing Through Comedy in Daily Life

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback 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.
