Week 6 Lectures 2019
Week Six :: July 27–August 3
Come learn and laugh with us as Chautauqua Institution again partners with the National Comedy Center for a week exploring how comedy changes us and, in turn, society.
Interfaith Lecture Theme :: What's So Funny About Religion?
Even religion can have its less serious side, and in this week we will look for a lighter, smiling way to lift one’s heart and mind in the human enterprise that tends to take life and its meaning and purpose very seriously. Building upon our 2018 week on “The Spirituality of Play,” we will use words to play and to discover that seeing the humorous side of religion is a delightful way of joyfully leading the human to the divine. Be prepared to smile!
Don't see what you're after? Several lectures from Week 6 are not available for sale, including those by Tom & Dick Smothers with David Bianculli, Frank Oz, and David Steinberg & Lewis Black.
