The Arts Council of Princeton presents Black Comedy: No Tears, Just Politics
February 3, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$10 – $15
Join the Arts Council of Princeton at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts for a unique Black History Month event that will showcase how African American comedy is not just about getting laughs, but has historically been a vital form of politically engaged commentary on American society. The event will feature NYC comic actor Grant Cooper and Dr. Lindsey Swindall.
Robeson Center Performances range from jazz, blues, world-fusion, folk, musical theater, and culturally-specific roots music. With Robeson Center Live!, Café Improv – a monthly showcase of local and regional artists broadcast on Princeton Community Television – and community collaborations, Robeson Center Performances present a diverse range of artists in the intimate setting of the Arts Council of Princeton’s Solley Theater, one of New Jersey’s best listening rooms. These performances present live music, theater, spoken word and comedy, in an uncluttered sound space,providing the audience with an inspiring, up-close-and-personal experience.
