Sarfraz Manzoor explores the view that Muslims lack a sense of humour.

Writer and broadcaster Sarfraz Manzoor, himself a practising Muslim, talks to Muslim comics, comedy writers and scholars about what makes their fellow-believers laugh. How far can Muslim humour go about their faith? How does it compare to the way other religions and cultures laugh at themselves? And what subjects - if any - are off-limits?
