Every joke is an experiment. The world of comedy constantly evolves as comics explore innovative ways to make people laugh. Organized and hosted by curator and writer Miriam Katz, this event showcases comedians and comedy groups including Cocoon Central, Josh Fadem, Jeffrey Joseph, Joe Pera, and Rory Scovel, whose performances involving dance, music, characters, and plays on form, illustrate some of the newest innovations in comedy today.

MoMA PS1’s acclaimed VW Sunday Sessions program welcomes visitors to experience art live and in real time. Embracing performance, music, dance, conversations, and film, the program vividly demonstrates how these art forms can push us to engage with our contemporary world in creative, illuminating ways. With an emphasis on artistic practices that blur and break traditional genre boundaries, the program supports and commissions new work, inviting artists, curators, and other cultural instigators to share their latest projects.

Something New is co-presented by The New York Comedy Festival.

Sunday Sessions is organized by Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator with Mike Skinner, Producer, and Alex Sloane, Live Programs Coordinator.
