Larry Charles' Dangerous World of Comedy review: An illuminating journey towards what makes us human - Firstpost - via Firstpost

In the four part series, Charles travels to countries ravaged by war, tyranny and authoritarianism in a bid to understand what makes their people laugh. He meets stand-up comedians of varying degrees of fame in each country, their success or lack of it a telling sign of the state of affairs in their land. He goes from Iraq to Liberia, Somalia, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria, back home to the USA, where a racist, alt-right comedy scene has sprung up alongside the protectionism endorsed by the new president. There are moments of boundless joy amidst the darkness of censorship and tyranny, moments of hope for ethnic minorities, newly represented by comedians using stand-up to tell their stories, interviews with racists, misogynists and bigots, with soldiers using comedy as therapy to pull through the fog of war, even mass murderers confessing their love for sitcoms. LCDWOC encompasses them all. Barring a few missteps attributable to cultural differences, the show is an illuminating journey through the heart of darkness towards what makes us human.
