Course Schedule – Fall 2023 / Contemporary Issues / COMEDY CENTRAL
Coordinators: Wayne Cotter, Leslie Goldman, Vince Grosso, Michael Wellner
You never know what to expect at a Comedy Central class. It could be a session on New Yorker cartoons or a live interview with a top-shelf television comedian.
We cover silent comics such as Charlie Chaplin as well as streaming sensations, like the award-winning Ted Lasso show. In other words, this class explores everything that has made Americans laugh over the past 100 years.
