Erin Jackson's Opinions Are in the Sunday 'Times'
by Liz McKeon - 0

By WICF Editor Liz McKeon

Erin Jackson took part in this Sunday's New York Times "Room for Debate" column, debating the question "Are People Getting Dumber?" Her answer? "Without a doubt."

And she thinks it's bad for comedy. "[B]eyond that," she writes, "I believe it’s also resulted in a collective inability to discern nuance, interpret social cues, take a joke. Somewhere in between all the LOL’s and J/K’s, we’ve lost our sense of humor."

Read the rest of Erin's opinion piece, "Stupidity Is Funny, but It’s No Joke," and then come watch her host our headlining event with Carol Leifer, featuring Kelly MacFarland, on Saturday, March 25 at 7 PM at the Longy School of Music, and as the featured performer in our headlining event with Wendy Liebman, hosted by Erin Judge, at 9:30 PM.
