    • Society & Culture

Ready for a laugh?  As we start easing up on lockdown are we ready to laugh about it yet?  We ask comedy producer Emma Brunjes, producer of Dave’s Edinburgh Comedy Awards about comedians’ take on Coronavirus and how they’ll survive without the Edinburgh Festival.  And we talk to Founder of the Chineke Orchestras, Chi-chi Nwanoku about the Junior Orchestra’s triumph on Britain’s Got Talent, the Black Lives Matter movement and the future for classical musicians of colour.  Plus we discuss all latest exciting offerings on television  from Sitting in Limbo and Little Fires Everywhere to Filthy Rich and Steve Coogan in Greed.

We’re laughing at:
