COMEDY IN FRAUGHT POLITICAL TIMES
With the current political and social climate, it seems that the boundaries between politics and stand-up comedy are crumbling. Comedy can play an important role in our politics, both in challenging apathy and the fear and despair that tend to dominate our newsfeeds. They often use humor to address inequalities, divisive topics, “taboo” subjects, and more, but how do they challenge those who say they have “crossed a line”? Does the line exist? Hear from outspoken comedians, including Nore Davis, Chanty Marostica, and Hoodo Hersi, as they talk about what it’s like right now making jokes in a fraught political moment. Moderated by Richard Crouse (CTV’s Pop Life).
