Needless to say, I am very nervous and completely outside of my element, but I am so every excited and honored to be part of this year's TEDxColumbiaCollegeChi - on April 1st (NO JOKE!) 11AM-6PM. The theme for this year's conference is "Evoking Presence". My talk is titled "Stand Up with Comedy: Evoking Power Through Vulnerability". It's gonna be a fantastic day of listening and learning, with fellow speakers: Stephen Asma, Kacy Johnson, Rich Alapack, Jocelyn Delk Adams, Jim Bachor, Sajana Kantayya, Volker Rose, Louis Carr, Indira Johnson.
