Political Comedy - A Master Class
About the class
As America slips into fascism, it's important, now more than ever to exercise our first amendment rights while we still have them! In this class, satirist Jena Friedman will help students hone their political comedy chops for TV, film, web or print (is that still a thing?). You will come out of this class with an understanding of contemporary political comedy and satire (beyond The Daily Show and SNL) and a blueprint for your own project (that's right, she's going to make you work). Whether you're a newbie or veteran comedian, if you're interested in using comedy for social good and/or just to mess with people in power, this class is for you! 10% of proceeds go to The ACLU.
