Laugh It Up, Fuzzball: Writing Science Fiction Comedy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

No matter how many Sith lords tempt you to the Dark Side, or how often your starship is put on red alert, there is always time to laugh. While most associate science fiction with being serious, comedy and sci-fi have a long and celebrated history together. Three writers from Fox's "Family Guy," all of whom are huge nerds, will discuss why people love to laugh along with their favorite sci-fi heroes, and how adding science fiction to comedy can create wonderful and hilarious new stories. These writers are executive producer Steve Callaghan, executive producer Cherry Chevapravatdumrong ("The Orville"), and co-executive producer Kirker Butler (ABC's "The Neighbors", "Galavant"). Kirker Butler wrote the "Family Guy"/"Empire Strikes Back" episode "Something, Something, Something Dark Side", and Cherry Chevapravatdumrong wrote the "Return of the Jedi" episode "It's A Trap." The panel will take questions both from the moderator, as well as from the audience.
