McCabe Lecture by Paul Young '92

This year’s McCabe Lecture, "An Urgent Case for Laughter,” was given by Paul Young ’92, an Emmy-winning producer whose credits include Key & Peele, black-ish, and Central Intelligence. In his lecture, Young shared his personal story—at times a difficult one— and the important role laughter has played in his life. He also explained how laughter can be a first step in grieving and healing the divisions in our lives, on college campuses, and in our country.

Young graduated with Honors from Swarthmore with a major in English literature and a minor in sociology and anthropology.
