LOL, a Philosophical Look at Comedy
April 16, 2019 at 2:30 PM | Morristown, NJ | Bickford Theatre
Chuckle. Chortle. Snicker. Cackle. Guffaw. Laughter. We usually recognize comedy by the laughter which accompanies it, but is that all there is to it? What is the true nature of comedy? Since the formal introduction by the ancient Greeks, comedy has been and continues to be more than just laughs. It can be explored from a philosophical perspective and shed light on this aspect of the human condition. In this session, participants will take this jovial phenomenon seriously, one laugh at a time.
