Town Hall Presents Laughing Matters: Comedy & Accountability 10.3.19

Join BRIC TV and The Reductress at a #BHeard Town Hall on Oct. 3, 6:30-8:30 p.m., for a live-televised discussion moderated by Brian Vines. BRIC’s Town Hall series brings together local politicians, activists, journalists and community members to unpack important issues facing Brooklyn. At the upcoming Town Hall, panelists will tackle the role of comedy in perpetuating systems of oppression or in driving social change.  Questions they will explore are: If comedy is all about timing, are we in a golden era or its darkest hour? What’s offensive to one person might be hilarious to another. Does freedom of expression mean freedom from repercussions? Is “cancel culture” an example of censorship, or a way to hold people accountable?
