Dannagal Young

Associate Professor Communication

Dannagal Young doesn’t just research political humor. She lives it.

At UD, Young studies political satire, political media effects, public opinion and the psychology of political humor. By night, she performs with an improv troupe.

Young has used her knowledge in both fields to provide expert analysis for stories about late night TV’s coverage of the election. She’s been quoted in the Washington Post, Variety Magazine and the Philadelphia Inquirer.
