About this Event

Does it matter what we laugh at? Join academic Sophie Quirk as she asks whether stand-up comedy has an impact on politics and society, exploring how it manipulates attitudes and voices dissent. This talk will demonstrate the potential harm - and real benefits - that may arise from 'just' being funny. Part of the Beyond A Joke series.
