Have you ever found yourself laughing along with a comedian even when you know you are not “supposed” to? This performative event considers the boundaries of humor, asking who can make a joke about what topics and who can laugh at those jokes? The event includes stand-up by Kelli Dunham and Robin Cloud, followed by a discussion moderated by Brandyn Heppard, about the growing role of comedians in exposing the hypocrisy and vitriol in public life and what humor can tell us about uncomfortable discussions and topics more broadly.
