Ritch Shydner’s - America's Reflection in the Fun House Mirror: A History of Stand-up Comedy

A funny and insightful 90 minute multi-media presentation about the roots and flowering of an original American art form, stand-up comedy.


The most immediate art form, standup comedy, captures the country’s zeitgeist at any given moment. A funny joke pleases while exposing hidden truths. This lecture explores what America’s laughter says about us.


The stories of forgotten trailblazers, martyred iconoclasts and familiar stars show how the simple act of one joker taking on a crowd became one of our most popular entertainments and a cultural weathervane.
