Comedy — Punching up or Punching down?
Line up so far
Sadia Azmat — British Asian Stand-up comedian and writer from East London.
Will Franken — character comedian, satirist, mimic and actor based in London, England.
Do we live in a stifling climate of political correctness, where dangerous ideas are censured and heretics outcast? Can risqué, spontaneous comedy really thrive in such an environment… Or perhaps such sentiments belong to an unpleasant and outdated school of comedy.
Must our humour really come at the expense of the vulnerable or downtrodden?..
As the realm of acceptable humour shrinks are we merely saying goodbye to the crass and cheap humour of a bygone age?
Or do our most outrageous and dangerous comics need the freedom to offend in order to flourish?
Is this actually even happening?
And if it were, might it not be progress?
Whatever your perspective, come take a peek over the parapet and join us at 2022 on 13th June for an evening of debate, discussion and dare we say some laughs…
