Award-winning author and pop culture historian, Martin Gitlin, hosts this fun and enlightening presentation based on his book, The Greatest Sitcoms of All Time. He is the only author to rank the best of the best, including I Love Lucy, All in the Family, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Cheers, Seinfeld, Frasier, and Modern Family. He will show funny snippets from those shows and others, challenge patrons with sitcom trivia (including cool theme songs to identify!), discuss the criteria he used to rank the best of the best and talk about how sitcoms have evolved over the decades in humor, presentation, and content.
