A HISTORY OF TV COMEDY: From Milton Berle to David Letterman

Presented by BRIAN ROSE

From the earliest days of television, making people laugh was one of the central goals of TV programmers. 

This presentation will survey the extraordinary landscape of American TV comedy, examining how comedy changed from the vaudeville shtick of Milton Berle and the slapstick artistry of Lucille Ball to the social satire of Saturday Night Live and the self-reflexive absurdities of David Letterman and The Simpsons.

BRIAN ROSE, former professor at Fordham University's College and author of several books on television history, has interviewed over 100 directors, actors and writers in the motion picture and television industry. 

Please register by Thursday evening, October 1.  Zoom link sent Friday morn by noon.

Two months after receiving an “all clear” mammogram, Leslie Ferris Yerger was diagnosed with Stage IV lobular breast cancer when abnormalities were found during a routine bone density scan. While receiving treatment at Mayo Clinic, Leslie learned about a new breakthrough screening technology, Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) that detects invasive breast cancers in women with dense breast tissues. Nearly one half of all women have dense breast tissues. This remarkable imaging test detects breast cancer at three times the rate of conventional screening tools when used in addition to mammography.

After treatment, Leslie vowed to change her life and use her unfortunate diagnosis to educate others and help advance the next generation of breast cancer screening technologies. She raised over $100,000 to advance further study of MBI technology and facilitated the donation of an MBI machine to Advocate Good Shepherd Breast Care Center.

Join us as we learn about MBI, Leslie’s transformative journey and what you can do to advocate for yourself.
