Episode 18

Please note, this episode includes explicit language and is not intended for kids.

Are there ethical limits on comedy? Can a joke be so extreme, so offensive, or just so mean that it becomes unethical? James is joined by actress, writer, and comedian Nadia Kamil to discuss “Can comedy go too far?” Using a notorious bit by Stewart Lee about Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond as their starting point, Nadia and James explore the ethical boundaries of comedy.
