SHARE `NUCLEAR HUMOR’ AIMS AT POSITIVE FALLOUT

When Lou Borgenicht talks about nuclear humor, don't expect to hear about jokes that bomb.

Borgenicht's multimedia presentation, titled "The Last Laugh," heightens awareness of nuclear arms issues through the medium of humor. Sponsored by Utah Physicians for Social Responsibility, Borgenicht will present his slides, videotapes and stand-up comedy at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 18, in the Art and Architecture Auditorium at the University of Utah (the lower level of the U.'s Museum of Fine Arts)."The Last Laugh" premiered in Salt Lake City last April and has since been performed in Palo Alto, Calif.; Washington, D.C., and Boston. Borgenicht has been collecting political cartoons, bumper stickers, music and parodies, as well as official government documents, over the past decade. The presentation is based on novelist Robert Stone's belief that "Laughter is a primary moral response. Laughter is a renunciation of chaos, a rejection of evil and an affirmation of balance and soundness."

Borgenicht's nuclear humor takes a look at an issue he hopes won't blow up in our face.
