A gifted comic doesn't just make you laugh, they make you think. Nervous Laughter is a bi-weekly show where comics use humor as a tool to confront touchy issues
When done properly, stand-up comedy can be about so much more than just making people laugh. It can also be used as a cudgel against tyranny and injustice, the jokes we laugh at can make us look within and confront the thorny issues that rarely come up in polite conversation. When creating the concept for their bi-weekly comedy show Nervous Laughter, Sarah Harvard and Gene Meyer wanted to tap into this approach. Each show has a different theme (past themes include Green Card and Culture Class) and features an outstanding lineup of stand-ups exploring the topic. Ideally you'll laugh a lot, cringe a little and walk out of the room thinking.
