Humor on Stage and Screen

 


What are some of the best humorists and comedians in the history of Western culture? In this course, we’ll find out -- and laugh along the way! We will touch on the comedies of ancient Greek theater, along with a sampling of Shakespeare, Gilbert and Sullivan, and others -- and then move into the performance comedy of American vaudeville and movies, including the Marx Brothers, Charlie Chaplin, Laurel and Hardy, Martin and Lewis and more! We will analyze humor on stage and screen from a literary and historical perspective. This course will be a great addition for students seeking to enhance their cultural literacy!
