Set in the golden age of live television, What Passes for Comedy kicks off with a late-night talk show host reading the wrong cue card with a punch line that rocks the nation. The three young writers behind the prank are now in a fight for their professional lives as celebrity guests drop, the head of the network is out for blood, and an all-night work session reveals hard truths. They each find out where the laughter stops and bigotry begins.

Theatre is located on the 3rd floor. An elevator is available.
