Like contemporary art, comedy disrupts our expectations of the status quo and engages with difficult topics, such as religion, race, sexuality, or politics—while making us laugh. The artists Cary Leibowitz and Roz Chast, whose work is currently on view at The Museum, both use variants of traditional Jewish humor to disarm the viewer. Comedians Nato Green, Natasha Muse, Dhaya Lakshminarayanan, Joe Nguyen, and Francesca Fiorentini perform and discuss edgy comedy.
