Wayne Federman, The History of Standup & Annabelle Gurwitch, You’re Leaving When? Adventures in Downward Mobility
November 21 | 7:30 pm
Bringing an Emmy-nominated stand-up, actor, author, producer, and professor, Wayne Federman, to your living room! Join us virtually for a live author talk and Q & A session.
Today’s top stand-up comedians sell out arenas, generate millions of dollars, tour the world, and help shape our social discourse. So, how did this all happen? The History of Stand-Up chronicles the evolution of this American art form – from its earliest pre-vaudeville practitioners like Artemus Ward and Mark Twain to present-day comedians of HBO and Netflix. Drawing on his acclaimed History of Stand-up podcast and popular university lectures, veteran comedian and adjunct USC professor Wayne Federman guides us on this fascinating journey.
