ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Laugh out loud as author David Misch—author of the forthcoming Funny: The Book—gives a hilarious, video-illustrated talk that traces the history of humor.
Entertaining and informative, Misch will discuss humor from its origins in ancient and classical cultures to the sitcom you saw last night. Misch has been a comic folksinger, stand-up comic, and screenwriter. His credits include Mork and Mindy, Police Squad!, The Muppets Take Manhattan, Saturday Night Live, and Duckman. His play, Occupied, is scheduled to be produced later this year at the Skylight Theater in Los Angeles.
A Q&A and book signing follow the program.
