At this hands-on, minds-on event, participants will: attend workshops presented by performers and professionals in the field of humor communications; view and discuss excerpts of stand-up performances addressing social issues; work in groups to produce and present their own comedic material around a social issue of their choice; and enjoy a live stand-up comedy act as a culminating experience.
