Press coverage

Full press release

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 Spiked.
