    EP 47 - The Culture of Comedy

    EP 47 - The Culture of Comedy

    We all like a good laugh - or at least most of us do - but what is it that can be classed as “comedy” today?

    Can the comedy of the past be classed as offensive, despite us laughing at it way back when?

    Has the structure of comedy changed?

    Does comedy go too far?

    Are the jokes of today more cutting and offensive than the jokes that started “There was an Irishman, English man and Scottish man…”

    These questions … and many more … are discussed by the usual panel of suspects; each one comedic in their own right.
