In collaboration with Emerson's Center of Comedic Arts, The Southwick Recital Life Out Loud is focused on humor...not the ha-ha so much as the sometimes sweet, sometimes funny, sometimes dark, sometimes painful moments in life that can connect us all. Through personal narrative, prose, poetry, and dramatic monologue, a variety of Emerson students and faculty share the feast of language and the critical nourishment humor provides to both our individual and collective spirits.
Originally performed live in the Semel Theater on March, 25, 2022, this program honors the Southwick tradition while expanding it to make oral communication of story and literature accessible for twenty-first century audiences and representative of that audience's diverse voices.
Please note, this program includes adult language and themes and is not recommended for younger viewers.

The EVVY Awards is made up of over 300 students with diverse majors and backgrounds who collaborate to create the nation’s largest student-run, multi-camera, live award show in the nation, judged by industry professionals. The EVVYs is a platform to highlight outstanding student work and celebrate the artistic vision of all Emersonians. Our show is, and always will be, created for the students by the students.
Let’s start at the beginning. Your beginning. How has your life shaped the work you do today? How will it shape the work you do in the future? For this year’s EVVYs, we are not only putting focus on the work, but the students who are creating it. We are inspired by the beauty of the natural world and how we all play a part in it.
