Kate Copstick and special guests Desiree Burch, Scott Capurro, Tanyalee Davis, Jordan Gray, Roger Mahony, Tim Renkow and Kate Smurthwaite tackle the tricky subject of taboo in comedy, exploring what's wrong with woke, who can say what to whom, where and when, and asking why can't we all just lighten up and laugh. Unless you object to the use of the word lighten... which is not meant in any sense of lighter being better...
