To Laugh Is Your Only Job

  • Thursday, March 31, 2022
    7 PM–9 PM ET
  • Knafel Center OR Online on Zoom
    10 Garden Street
    Cambridge, MA 02138

Join us for a night of stand-up comedy featuring student comics from the Harvard College Stand-up Comic Society and the Harvard Undergraduate Feminist Comedy Collective. Through a series of individual sets, student performers will explore the intersection of gender and comedy—and keep us laughing in the process.

The program will include a brief panel discussion and a Q&A with the audience.

The Harvard Undergraduate Feminist Comedy Collective is concerned with helping more women, LGBTQ+, and nonbinary comics—an un- and underrepresented community in the undergraduate comedy scene—develop their comedic potential, workshop material, and undertake projects on campus.

The Harvard College Stand-up Comic Society is a community of student stand-up comics who seek to foster an inclusive space to learn and develop comedy on campus. Comics of all experience levels are welcome.

Harvard Radcliffe Institute gratefully acknowledges the Perrin Moorhead Grayson and Bruns Grayson Dean’s Leadership Fund for Academic Ventures, which is supporting this event.
