44. Let There Be Laughter: Michael Krasny On StageSaturday, June 3 | 5:00 PM - 5:45 PM
Is it possible to study culture and laugh at the same time? Michael Krasny proves it is, delving deeply into the themes, topics, and forms of Jewish humor: chauvinism undercut by irony and self-mockery, the fear of losing cultural identity through assimilation, the importance of vocal inflection in joke-telling, and calls to communal memory, including the use of Yiddish. Here is an opportunity to hear and meet the man you listen to on the radio four weekday mornings a week!
