STEM Comedy Show

Start Date of Event: 10/03/2020

Event Times: 7:00 - 8:00 pm

Description:


Robots are taking over jobs in manufacturing, security, but what about comedy? Find out on October 3rd when joke-telling robots take the virtual stage in a show like you have never seen before. Pesky humans will also be performing.

This show will feature robotics researchers, joke-telling robots, human stand-up comedians, and a live Turing test with an improv troupe! Audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions about the performances after the show.This show will take place on Zoom. 

Performers   

Naomi Fitter is an engineering professor at Oregon State University, who also does stand-up comedy. Her soothing midwestern voice has been described as "sexy," "librarian-like," and "nearly inaudible." She has opened for Bil Dwyer, Laurie Kilmartin, and Whitney Cummings and performed in the All Jane Comedy Festival. When she's not telling jokes, she spends time creating our future robot overlords.

Jon the Robot is Naomi's autonomous joke-telling machine. He has not learned to pass captcha challenges, but he hopes to captcha your heart.

Improbotics is an artificial intelligence and communications technology-powered improv comedy show, performed live by an international troupe. Some improvisers are controlled by robots running artificial intelligence chatbots: will they pass the Turing Test? We explore how physically distant actors can communicate and seamlessly perform while controlled by a machine. Our impossible (and hilarious) challenge relies on absurdism, misunderstanding and human connection.
