WHAT’S SO FUNNY?: STAND-UP COMEDY
Friday, October 30, 2015
12:00 to 13:30
<p>What is it about comedy that is so subversive? Stand-up comedians, in particular, are constantly trying to find ways to elicit laughs from their audiences, often resorting to controversial topics as a means of pushing the envelope and, consequently, attracting more attention to themselves and the larger audiences that come with that increased attention. In many cases, such comedy also carries with it social and political messages that critique the status quo as well as the powers that be. Popular stand-up comediennes Jess Salomon and Eman El-Husseini are no strangers to controversy, and in this panel they will speak about writing comedy and the debates it often incites.</p>
<p>The English Symposium Committee would like to thank The Faculty of Science and General Studies for sponsoring this event, and Vanier&rsquo;s Print Shop, Bookstore, Student Services, and Communications Department for assisting with various aspects of it.</p>
