During her weekly class at the Greenwich House Senior Center, comedian Jo Firestone teaches comedy to a group of seniors who prove to be more provocative, political and unfiltered on-stage than off. This screening will be followed by a live Zoom conversation with Jo Firestone and Alicia Eler of the Star Tribune.

Jo Firestone is a comedian whose work can be seen on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Joe Pera Talks With You, High Maintenance, Shrill, and more. She can be heard on Maximum Fun’s Dr. Gameshow, a podcast she co-hosts with Manolo Moreno and Comedy Central’s “Everyday Decisions,” a podcast she hosts all alone. Her album, "The Hits" is available on Comedy Central Records, and if you like puns, check out “Punderdome: A Card Game for Pun Lovers.

Alicia Kısmet Eler is the Star Tribune's visual art critic/reporter by day, and a queer, Jewish, Turkish-American writer by night. Her first book The Selfie Generation, is available now. Her writing can be found in dozens of publications, including Guardian, New York Magazine and Hyperallergic. In her rare sliver of free time, Alicia is a meme artist 👩‍🎨 

In this hilarious and heartwarming special, Jo Firestone teaches a comedy workshop for 16 senior citizens, leading up to their first live stand-up show.
