Lyceum Committe presents Heather Knight’s robot comedy show March 3

Carnegie Mellon doctoral candidate and social roboticist, Heather Knight, will bring her robotic comedy show to the San Jacinto College South Campus on Tuesday, March 3 at 7pm. in the Proscenium Theatre in the Marie Spence Flickinger Fine Arts Center.

Knight’s Marilyn Monrobot Labs consists of a robot comedian, robot film festival, and Cyborg Cabaret. Data, the robot comedian, has a large database of jokes programmed internally, each labeled with certain attributes so that Data knows something about the subject, length, and flow of the joke. Based on the audience’s response, Data then caters the rest of the comedy routine based on audience interaction and participation.

The event is free and open to the public. This is event is sponsored by the San Jacinto College Lyceum Committee.
