Courses – Fall 2022 / Visual and Performing Arts / COMEDY & SATIRE

Coordinators: Wayne Cotter, Leslie Goldman, Michael Wellner

Here we explore why, when, and how we laugh.

The class features writers, performers, and artists who brought us laughter over the years and we explore the extent to which their humor reflected the times in which they lived.

We think now more than ever is the time to enjoy a good laugh together.
