African Odysseys Presents: The Black History of Comedy
Be prepared to laugh your head off and learn about world history in this special session.
Total runtime 100min
Comedians often use history in their material. In this interactive session we’ll piece together a visual tapestry of the best historical comedy from popular and lesser-known comics from the 1960s to now. We’ll place their amusing observations on a historical timeline of international struggle for Black equality, and show how comedy can be educational – be prepared to laugh your head off and learn about world history at the same time! Presented by Tony Warner, Black History Walks, Chair of African Odysseys’ steering committee.
