Vice News explores the politics of booking college comedians in 2018

In case you missed it, VICE News shipped up to Boston this spring to talk to bookers for three local colleges — Emerson, Simmons and Lesley — about how they decide which comedians to bring to campus, and what kind of expectations they lay down for the stand-ups.

It also features some nice moments with Chris Fleming and Judy Gold.

Oh, and trigger warnings galore for comedians! Here’s what Gold has to say to anyone offended by her jokes: “The joke is not about you. You need to learn how to be in this world. The world doesn’t have to adjust for you. So figure that out.”

Roll it.
