Just this last weekend, we had an econ-related lecture I helped organize for the local Reed alumni chapter. I’d originally wanted to have Yoram Bauman PhD do some standup comedy before the lecture, but when it came down to it, I couldn’t figure out a good way to have stand-up comedy and a serious discussion about economics in a two hour period without compromising one or the other.
Now we may have lost our chance. Yoram was just linked from the widely read and influential blog of Jason Kotke, who pointed to a YouTube Video of Yoram doing one of his bits. I’m sure it will be mere weeks before Yoram is hanging out with Jon Stewart, Alan Greenspan, and Bono, and has no time for us little people.
