About the show

“In this live show, comedy and tech come together at last. Each month, the tech ethicist David Ryan Polgar and the comedian Joe Leonardo invite a wide range of guests to pick apart and laugh about such matters as algorithms and artificial intelligence.” -The New York Times

The future is either bright or non-existent, depending on who you ask. Our visions of future work (Georgia Jetson had a four-hour workweek that consisted of pushing a button) have typically included images of comfort, hyper-efficiency, and more leisure time. Or will we all just get replaced by robots? Join the conversation! Funny as Tech, a live panel show and studio podcast that tackles the thorniest issues in technology, has assembled a diverse panel of experts to have a freewheeling conversation on the Future of Work for this nerdy night out.

The panel for What Is the Future of Work?!: Charlie Oliver (CEO & Founder of Tech 2025), Galina Ozgur (General Manager of Grand Central Tech), and Lisa Cervenka (Employer Brand Evangelist at The Muse).
