Convocation — Claire Berger, "Stress Reduction Through Humor"

Claire Berger will inspire us to be more positive and productive by incorporating more fun in our lives. She accomplishes this by creating awareness to the numerous benefits of humor in promoting the health and well being of both students and faculty. With a career in comedy that spans over 2 decades and around the globe, from comedy clubs to colleges to keeping audiences entertained during the taping of popular sitcoms, Berger realized that the one place where humor is most needed, but often missing, is in the workplace. Claire Berger began her comedy career in Chicago with the legendary Second City improvisational theater. She received critical acclaim as a stand-up comedian and radio talk show host. After moving to Los Angeles, she found great success as a warm-up comedian entertaining audiences of over 65 different television shows including "Seinfeld," "Just Shoot Me," "The Ellen Show" and nine seasons with "Murphy Brown."
