The Evolution of Comedy tackles funny beliefs

Beliefs are funny things. From aliens to talking snakes, people believe in some pretty ludicrous stuff, and the rationalist comedians of The Evolution of Comedy tour are here to have fun with that. This Sunday, November 11, Ian Harris, Jason Resler and Maurice Northup will be at Comedy Works to riff on the absurdity of people's irrational beliefs. Before the show, we caught up with Harris to talk about skepticism, conspiracy theory and the hazards of poking fun of people's core beliefs.
