Teaching Comedy in Jordan! / by Caitlin Kunkel

In September 2019 I had the fantastic opportunity to travel to Amman, Jordan, for The Second City to teach a class on Satire for Late Night TV. Over five days I worked with my co-teacher and a group of 32 amazing young comedians to create the seeds of a new comedy scene.

A huge thank you to Amman Comedy Club and The Second City Training Center for the experience - it was a real career highlight for me! Here is a 45-minute segment about the program - it’s mainly in Arabic (we used translators in the program) but our interviews in the middle are in English.
