This class will explore the bounds of what comedy can be by looking towards the avant-garde. In other words, a pretentious excuse to talk about 100 Gecs, Andy Warhol, and Eric Andre. The first half of class will be spent watching and discussing clips, looking at everything from Adult Swim favorites to 70s surrealist underground cinema. Then, in the second half, we will put what we learned into practice by making our own experimental comedy video. Expect a lot of self-ironic jokes, undercutting, and the occasional decent idea. Led by Aaron Grinberg.
