The First-of-its-Kind two-day event series will feature industry leaders, comedians, writers, influencers, and more

WHAT: The Creative Coalition CEO Robin Bronk will be among the panelists at the first-ever ‘Comedy Included’ at the New York Comedy Festival, a celebration of diverse voices in comedy. The event will take place at New York’s famed comedy club, Carolines on Broadway, founded by The Creative Coalition Board Member Caroline Hirsch.

Bronk will appear on the panel titled, “Can’t Take a Joke? When Comedy Meets Cancel Culture”
A description of the panel follows:

Culture has changed during the pandemic. Even prior to Covid, it has steadily grown more aware. There are more issues around cancel culture. How do comedians reflect on jokes that they used to tell? Would they tell them now? Or, are comedians putting guardrails on their comedy when they go back out? In this panel, we’ll explore how comedy is evolving and the role comedians play in crafting culture.
