History of Comedy
Humor is an important part of everyday life. From interpersonal relationships, to crafted presentations by comedians, to its use in movies, live theater, television, and in print, humor is relaxing, enlightening and entertaining. Humor often causes laughter, or at least a smirk, grin or smile. It has even been known to lead to tears of joy! A wide variety of types of comedy have been present from the ancient worlds of Greece and Rome to the latest episode of Seinfeld or skit at Second City. Humor and laughter have recently been studied for their positive impacts on physical and mental health. The lectures in this series will explore a variety of aspects of humor as part of the human condition. No lecture on March 7.
