Adam Zwar – You Can’t Say that!
The comedy goalposts are shifting and there is a demand that the art form gets more socially conscious. But can you be woke and funny? Are we living in a time of such change and heightened awareness that the two can now never be mutually exclusive? Alongside this discussion on “where the line is” we track through some of the funniest moments in comedy history and ask the panel – “Can you get away with than now?” And “Is it still funny?”
Special guests: Sammy J, Chris Ryan, Lawrence Mooney, Daniel Muggleton.
