Quick Fix | a mix of jokes with Margarita Žigutytė | 28 September, 7 pm, Kaunas Artists’ House
I would love to invite you to a cocktail party with some jokes served as snacks.
A great warm-up before Friday night, I would say. Even though I cannot promise that we will laugh all the time. But we might. Who knows how the time will turn out to be. Oh, and you can also bring some jokes to share (written jokes, YouTube videos or practical jokes). That would be my only request. I will also ask my great friends to share their favorite jokes and some recipes for cocktails.
As you can imagine I am making this because, recently, I’ve been missing some laughter. All this art makes me so bored. And all this fast production makes me stressed.
Also, I wanted to ask, whether there is something intimate about sharing a joke? What if people do not like it? So much vulnerability in revealing your sense of humour. But maybe it is still better than watching jokes alone on YouTube? I think we can talk about jokes in depth when we see each other.
I hope to see you soon.
