Why do we laugh? What makes something so darn funny? Which came first, the rubber chicken or the squirting egg? And who's on first? This hilarious and enlightening overview of the history of humor travels from its roots in Ancient Greece and early Vaudeville to present day through incredible comic readings, amusing recordings and stellar video performances of some of the most memorable and hysterical moments and performers in comedy history. Class will culminate in adapting/performing a short skit from one of the golden time periods of comedy.
