standup comedian and author Leighann Lord on Saturday, March 13, 2021

The Freethought Society is pleased to host standup comedian and author Leighann Lord on Saturday, March 13, 2021. The Zoom event starts with a pre-event chat session at 11:45 AM PST/2:45 PM EST. The formal presentation begins at Noon PST/3:00 PM EST.

The title of Lord’s presentation is “I’m not funny. What I am is Brave!” In an interview-style format, she will be talking about her career as a professional standup comedian who happens to be a secularist and a skeptic. After the interview session, Lord will be taking questions. After a break, plan to stay for a post-event happy hour/social.

Lord was the 2013 New York City face of the African Americans for Humanism outreach campaign sponsored by the Center for Inquiry (CFI) and its “Millions Living Happily Without Religion” campaign. Lord is a former co-host of the Emmy-nominated “StarTalk” with Neil de Grasse Tyson and has been the emcee for several Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (CFI’s skeptic arm) conferences. She is the author of “Dict Jokes” and “Real Women Do It Standing Up.”
