Day Two: Friday, May 23 - Men, Women & Comedy/ Stand up Comedy

Morning: CLASS: Men, Women & Comedy

What does gender have to do with what’s funny? “Take my wife. Please.” As Henny Youngman’s famous line points out, it’s a common theory of comedy (thank you, Freud) that one way we use humor is to exploit the anxiety, tension or anger we have about different things. Men making jokes about women, women making jokes about men, and both making jokes about marriage and sex, have been a staple of our comedy diet since the beginning. Take Aristophanes, please. Over 2400 years ago, his plays were filled with comedy about the genders. And those cave drawings in France? What do you think they were talking about? How he won’t take out the garbage and how she put on a couple of extra pounds. Beginning with a short history of how gender has played out in humor, we will discuss the following questions: In what ways do the genders continue to battle out their differences through humor? What is the difference between “women’s” humor and “men’s” humor? Why does comedy tend to be so dominated by men? How do things change when a male or female say the same joke? How does “gendered” comedy challenge or uphold the values of the status quo? How does the humor of the gay/lesbian/bi/trans community enter into this? Employing audio and video examples and lots of jokes, this workshop, promises a lively, provocative and fun discussion.

Lunch: Enjoy a lunch buffet in the hotel which includes complimentary hot and iced tea.

Afternoon: CLASS: Men, Women and Comedy, Part 2

Dinner: Enjoy a dinner buffet in the hotel which includes complimentary coffee and hot tea.

Evening: Stand up Comedy: MAUREEN LANGAN headlines across the country and has been featured in festivals throughout Canada, Ireland, and the UK, where she was touted as being "condescendingly brilliant." She’s appeared on The Joy Behar Show, Gotham Live, and HBO. She’s opened for Joy Behar, Steven Wright, and appeared on Broadway with Rosie O'Donnell. Maureen hosts a weekly talk show, Hangin' with Langan, on KGO Radio in San Francisco. Maureen grew up in Lake Hiawatha, New Jersey, where there is no lake.
