In his 2012 book, Funny: The Book: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Comedy, David Misch studied the art, history and science of humor, from film to TV to stand-up comedy. Today, Misch’s lecture, followed by a Q&A, looks at when comedy goes too far and “humor’s role in defining – and defying – society’s moral boundaries.” Misch’s credits in comedy include working as a stand-up, a comic folk singer and screenwriter for Mork & Mindy, Saturday Night Live, Police Squad!, The Muppets Take Manhattan and Duckman.
