On the Psychology of Comedy

December 5, 2003 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday Talk:

What is comedy? Why is it so often paired with its dark twin tragedy? Why do we laugh? Is comedy healthy, or is it pathological? (Freud, who was rather dour, wrote a book on the subject, and Jung, known for his earthy humor and voluminous laugh, did not.) Bring a joke or bring a funny story to share!
