4:00pm – 5:15pm CT

Join Comic Relief US, a nonprofit that harnesses the power of entertainment to drive positive social change, for a special event on the intersection of gender, comedy and social impact. Through a stand up performance by comedian, writer and actress Joyelle Nicole Johnson and a panel discussion featuring "A League of Their Own" co-creator and star Abbi Jacobson and “Bust Down” co-creator and star Sam Jay, this event will address the role of comedy and entertainment as a catalyst for change and how when done well can combat, not cause, polarity.
