The December DIALOGUES event, "Katerina Vrana: I nearly died laughing" will feature a discussion with stand-up comedian Katerina Vrana.
Katerina will take stock of the past year, discussing the trials and tribulations that almost cost her her life and the dreams she has for the year ahead, all with the incredible humor that earned her third place in the "Funniest Person in the World" competition. The event will take place on December 19th, 2018 at the Athens Conservatoire.
