2017 Week 6 Lectures

Week Six :: July 29 – August 5
Comedy and the Human Condition:
In Partnership with the National Comedy Center
We partner with the National Comedy Center — the first cultural institution and national-scale visitor experience dedicated to the art of comedy, under construction now in nearby Jamestown, New York — for a week that engages both the mind and the funny bone.
We’ll explore the politics of comedy and political satire — comedy often serves as our greatest mirror, a unique conduit of truth.
We venture into the writers’ room for insight into the craft of comedy for television and film.
We travel the globe to see if there is such a thing as “universally funny”
When has a joke gone too far? We consider issues of free speech and ask, “Is there such a thing as too offensive?”
 
Interfaith Lecture Theme :: The Spiritual Power of Humor
Many religions tell stories in which ‘the gods laughed.’  In the Hebrew Scriptures Abraham and Sarah named their only son Isaac – meaning ‘she or he laughs,’ because of Sarah’s improbable advanced age to be giving birth – and Buddhism often depicts the Buddha laughing.  In this week we will look at the power of humor to create in-sight and healing of the spirit.
