LACC launched the Rodney Dangerfield Institute (RDI) in May 2017 in honor of the late comedian, Rodney Dangerfield. Initially offering four classes including a stand-up workshop, joke writing, improvisational comedy and an American film comedy genre class, the RDI is the only comedy institute in the country based within a community college. Additionally, the Institute will develop a filmed speaker series, guest lectures, performances, mentor programs and partnerships with Hollywood comedy clubs.
