Be Entertained on Earth Day with Laughing and Screening Liberally

Spend a side-splitting, planet-shaking Earth Day next Wednesday with Laughing and Screening Liberally!

The special night will feature a mixture of energetically efficient Laughing Liberally comedians and short films. The comics will deliver both green and recycled jokes that will keep your laughter sustainable and your conscience uncontaminated. Also preserving your pristine spirits will be satirical, shocking, and informative environmental short films.

Comedians include Katie Halper, Lee Camp, Harry Terjanian, and John Knefel, and the short films will feature "Treevenge," which played at this year's Sundance and South by Southwest festivals and won Fantasia Film Festival's Audience Award for Best Short.
