THE HISTORY OF HA!
Wed, Dec 9, 7 pm, $15*
Ripped from the pages of his award-eligible Funny: The Book / Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Comedy, David Misch presents "The History of Ha!," a some-holds-barred survey of absolutely everything funny that's ever happened, in an hour. (FDA advisory: Some funny things not included.) Beginning in pre-history with the mythological Trickster, this multimedia presentation looks at comedy from Ancient Greece to Modern Family , from court jesters to Groucho Marx, from Plato & Aristotle to Abbott & Costello. With stops along the way for commedia dell'arte, a French fartist, and how comedy killed Abraham Lincoln, David uses clips and commentary to look at what comedy is, where it comes from and where it's going (oddly enough, Philadelphia). David Misch has been a comic folksinger, stand-up comedian and screenwriter; his credits include the multiple-Emmy-nominated Mork & Mindy, the Emmy-losing Duckman, the Emmy-ignored Police Squad!, the Emmy-engorged Saturday Night Live, and the Emmy-ineligible The Muppets Take Manhattan.
