Martyn, Chris, and Sam are back. This week, they’re talking comedy. But what exactly is comedy and, who decides what’s funny?

The dictionary describes comedy as;

“professional entertainment consisting of jokes and sketches, intended to make an audience laugh.”

But, is that an accurate or relevant description? Your dynamic trio discusses their favourite comedians/influences, such as Lee Evans, Robin Williams, Paul Whitehouse, Shappi Khorsandi and, Dave Chappelle.

They also talk about “cancel culture” and ask questions such as “should it be one rule for comedians and one rule for everyone else?” and “what role should context play when telling a joke?”

The intro is taking from Dave Chappelle’s 2019 Netflix special ‘sticks & stones’.
