About the event

Craig Draheim has always been fascinated by society’s taboos, but nothing has piqued his interest more than how people respond to an offensive joke. When he got a chance to research humor after years of working in the field, Craig asked, “why are some comedians praised for offensive material, while others are criticized for tackling the same subject?” Little did he know that question would trigger a three-year journey of political rabbit holes, philosophical dilemmas, and questioning his own place in the world. What transpired is I'M THE JOKE.
