Here we examine some of the links between comedy and music: the use of humor in song writing and especially in live performances, the development of web-based musical comedy, the continuing role of the artist as "Court Jester," and the blending of comedy and music to raise awareness and/or funds for not-so-funny causes. For many years, the term "musical comedy" evoked 50s-era showtunes; now Green Day's "American Idiot" is a big hit on Broadway, and the song "D*ck In a Box" won an Emmy. We'll look at how the worlds of music and comedy work together in the digital age, and we'll consider what lies ahead. We'll be here all week; try the veal.
