What’s Funny U.? It’s a two-month Occupation of the Weekly Recurring Humor Night.
FU is an evening of comedy, in three parts. It’s a comedy writers’ workshop, facilitated by MSD, open to the public, intended for comedians and those who wish to become comedians. It’s also an hour-long live comedy podcast taping by the Mental State Department. It’s even an open mic that gives preferential treatment to comedians who write and attend.
At 8:00: Homeroom! – Participants will help each other write jokes, perform them in front of each other, and will receive preferential spots at the open mic later on in the evening. Wanna do a little extra time? Want to bump someone? Come to Homeroom and work on your craft and maybe you’ll get your wish.
At 9:30: Study Hall! – Live podcast taping. The Executive Committee of the Mental State Department deliver hilarious special reports on the week in problem-solving. Guest comedians perform. It’s a crazy fun time, with a live audience, and it all ends up on the internet so you can listen to it and think about it long afterward.
At 10:45: Recess Open Mic – Homeroom participants and other locals perform in the medium of comedy. A great mic to try out new material in front of a warm and friendly crowd! A better place to bring your A-game and impress comedians, bookers and agents. A perfect room to spot up-and-coming talent.
