This event has been rescheduled to summer 2020. Additional details will follow.
Chicago native, actor, and comedian Jeff Garlin will headline a discussion on how comedy is affected by today’s social and political climate, sponsored by The Museum of Broadcast Communications (MBC).
“It’s Comedy! When is Edgy Over the Edge?” is a fundraiser for MBC. Garlin is critically acclaimed for his work on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, ABC’s and WGN-TV’s The Goldbergs, and recent Netflix special “Our Man in Chicago.” Moderating the evening will be Dean Richards, WGN-TV and WGN Radio personality and entertainment reporter.
The April Fool’s evening will kick off with Richards interviewing Garlin about his work. Then, a dais of Chicago comedians will join them to talk about current comedy culture – discussing the push back from people offended by jokes some find too edgy or controversial.
