In the midst of the current comedy explosion surfs a tsunami of political satire. But Oliver, Maher, Bee and Noah follow a tradition that goes back to ancient Greece. In this talk, David Misch (“Mork & Mindy,” “The Muppets Take Manhattan,” “Saturday Night Live,” “Funny: The Book”) explores how satire deals with society’s taboos and inevitable censorship, from forbidden farts in Afghanistan to the silencing of a South African puppet, along with W.S. Gilbert, Groucho Marx, Richard Pryor, Monty Python, “Saturday Night Live,” “South Park,” Key & Peele, the Russian Orthodox Church and many more.
This performance includes mature content.

In addition to screenwriting, David Misch is a teacher (his courses on comedy at USC and musical satire at UCLA) and lecturer (Yale, the Smithsonian, Oxford University, University of Sydney, Raindance Film Festival London, American Film Institute, Austin Film Festival). More at davidmisch.com.
