Comedy: What's So Funny?

Humor is a universal language – it brings people together, satirizes current events, breaks down barriers, and makes the mundane interesting. But what's important about being funny? Vocalo's Brian Babylon hosts this session where our highly entertaining speakers will address the positive effects of laughter, the comedic process behind comedians, and why comedy is the greatest source of amusement worldwide.  

Speakers: Megan Amram, Kevin Bleyer, Chris Bliss, Jena Friedman, Seth Reiss, Will Tracy
