That's Not Funny! Are Offence-Seekers Killing Comedy?
  • Edinburgh Fringe

From the campaign to oust lad comedian Dapper Laughs from his ITV2 show to the banning of feminist stand-up Kate Smurthwaite at Goldsmiths University, the comic's right to probe, to jibe and to banter is under threat. In this free, one-off debate, Kate Copstick, Andrew Doyle, Janey Godley and Shazia Mirza will discuss if offence culture is making us all lose our sense of humour. Should comedians self-censor to avoid offending their audience? Or should they be free to joke about what they want? The debate is organised by the online magazine www.spiked-online.com.
