Can Humor Change the World?

Though I'm not sure if humor can actually change the world, I think it makes life much easier when people can make fun of themselves and the world around them.

Joe Janes of the 365 Sketches blog- which I am very sad is over, though I'm guessing he's happy to be done with writing a sketch or blackout each day of the year-- recently posted about a discussion taking place tomorrow night at Wicker Park's Th!nk Art Gallery at 1530 N. Paulina

This is from the Illinois Humanities Council...

Can humor change the world? Join us as we laugh and talk about war and peace with this special performance and conversation with comedian Azhar Usman. Co-founder of the wildly popular “Allah Made Me Funny—The Official Muslim Comedy Tour” and born and raised in Chicago to immigrant Muslim parents from Bihar, India, Usman is always interested in “waging peace through humor.”

This event is presented by The Public Square and Th!nk Art an International Art Gallery & Policy Salon, as part of their ongoing War & Peace exhibit.

Th!nk Art is at 1530 North Paulina, Suite F, just south of North Avenue in Wicker Park.

This event is FREE and open to the public. Reservations are required and can be made online, by email at or by calling 312.422.5580
