If comedy is all about timing, are we in a golden era or its darkest hour? What's offensive to one person might be hilarious to another. Does freedom of expression mean freedom from repercussion? Is "cancel culture" an example of censorship, or a way to hold people accountable? In this #BHeard Town Hall, we’ll explore the ways comedy can perpetuate systems of oppression, push for social change, or just make us laugh. 

Moderated by BRIC TV Managing Editor Brian Vines. Panelists TBA.
