    Making the Uncomfortable Comfortable
    Talks are 90-minute electrifying, action-inspiring onstage programs, featuring four to six world class thought leaders who each present ideas on a single theme through either an individual presentation or a one-on-one conversation with a host.

    Humor is a universal language - it brings people together, satirizes current events, breaks down barriers, and makes the mundane interesting. But what's important about being funny? Throughout this session, our highly entertaining speakers will address the positive effects of laughter, the comedic process behind comedians, and why comedy is the greatest source of amusement worldwide.

    Speakers: Megan Amram, Brian Babylon, Chris Bliss, Jena Friedman, Seth Reiss, Will Tracy
