A memorial service will be held for University of Chicago Professor and Latke Hamantash Debate host Ted Cohen at the Quadrangle Club, 1155 E. 57th St.

Cohen was a frequent commentator on the philosophical underpinnings of humor, which he put into practice as the host of the comedic Latke-Hamantash Debate on campus for nearly 40 years.

He died March 14 after a brief hospitalization, the university said last month.
