The face behind such iconic Scottish comedy characters as Auld Betty, Almost Angelic and Shoeless Josie, funny woman Karen Dunbar considers how, in this newly woke world, a comedian navigates taste and offence.

Karen sets out to perform a live comedy show true to the spirit of her iconic noughties characters - to a 'woke' Gen Z audience. Karen does the background research on the 'ins and outs 'of woke language and culture and tackles the boundary of offensive comedy, while simultaneously prepping for this special performance.
