Presenting the Junkee Take On:
Junkee Take On - Dangerous Laughs
a brand new monthly panel series at Giant Dwarf Theatre, where thinkers, writers and creators answer your questions, and get stuck into topics that matter.
For the inaugural Take On, we present Dangerous Laughs:
Between the recent Charlie Hebdo tragedy, the global response to The Interview, and ongoing discussions about gender, race, and religion in comedy, it’s an interesting time to be a political comedian.
Comedy often relies on walking the fine line between offensive and hilarious, but how far is too far? How soon is too soon? Where’s the line, and who gets to decide?
Join our panel of experts as we take on Australian satire, comedy, free speech, hate speech, and all that lies between.
Stand-up comedian Aamer Rahman;
Comedian, writer and theatre-maker Zoe Coombs Marr;
Triple j host, and regular Mad As Hell Guest, Veronica Milsom;
The Guardian Australia’s opinion editor, Adam Brereton;
During the moderated panel – which will be dappled with a few surprises -- we’ll be throwing to the audience for questions, prepared, or otherwise.
