Susanne Jaffe- A Tradition of Humor
August 6, 2019 @ 10:30 am
Ohio has a roster of talent in the humor category unlike just about any other state. Why, you might ask? Is it the inherent humor of being neither-coastal? Does that make someone see humor as a way to get through bleak winters and endless fields of corn and professional sports teams that can’t win? Or is the cause of this rich repository of wit as simple as wonderful talents thriving in the heartland of America since the heartland is, in and of itself, pretty funny. Humor is very subjective, and this talk will discuss how the individual humorists—be it writer, cartoonist, comic—always bring their homeland—their heart-land—to their work, and that means that tomorrow’s humorists are working right here, right now in Ohio.
