The Serious Side of Comedy: The Intersection of Language & Revolution

Friday, February 24, 6:30 p.m.

King Juan Carlos Center Auditorium, 53 Washington Square South, New York, NY 10012 (map)


Join CLACS at NYU for a serious conversation with Humorist & Creative Director SeJoe. Moderated by Wynnie Lamour, topics of discussion  will dive into the serious side of comedy, how it can be used as a window into social commentary, and the role of language as a tool of revolutionary behavior. Conversation will be followed by a comedy set by SeJoe!

Since 2009, Sejoe has been providing the Haitian and Haitian-American community with high quality humorous content in Haitian Creole, French and English. Born in Brooklyn and raised in Port-au-Prince, Sejoe's comedy is unique and maintains the voice and perspective of both Haiti and America. The effortless transition between three languages has set Sejoe apart from others, carving a lane specifically for him. When Sejoe is not on stage making people laugh, he is busy developing platforms like Sejoe University, an initiative to steer the Creole language into more households. With over 11.2 millions views on YouTube and a social media reach of over 250,000 followers, Sejoe's momentum is steadily increasing with no intentions of slowing down.

This event is free and open to the public. ID is required to enter the building.
