Let's Tell Jokes! -- Wednesday 12:00 to 12:55 -- (Elyce Picciotti -- Tulane PhD Student)
Wed, Aug 23, 2023, 12:00 PM CDT – Wed, Dec 6, 2023, 12:55 PM CST
Building a repertoire. Working on timing and delivery. Keeping a "comedy journal". Establishing rapport. Respecting all boundaries.
When the world goes crazy, laughter keeps us sane. A perfectly placed witticism, or look, or pause, can cut through an awful lot of crazy.
We will share funny jokes and stories, learn how to remember them. We’ll practice timing and delivery and learn how to keep a ‘comedy journal.’ We will watch some of the masters and hear from some local comics. We will celebrate the absurd. Most of all, we will make each other laugh (while respecting all boundaries).
