Dannagal Young

Associate Professor Communication

To understand and research political humor, experience is a must.

Dannagal Young has both bases covered, but not in the most conventional manner: At UD, she studies political satire, political media effects, public opinion and the psychology of political humor.

But she also has hands-on experience in the world of comedy, as she performs with a Philadelphia-based improv troupe. 

Young has been quoted in several major media outlets — including the Washington Post and Variety Magazine — and recently had an op-ed published in the Philadelphia Inquirer on the departure of “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart.
