In the news: Dealing with race in comedy

    “When you’re trying to make light of racial stereotypes or religion, you’d best be sure you’re doing it in a way that doesn’t leave the audience stonefaced instead of laughing as if they’re stoned. If you’re doing satire on terrorism, you’re dancing a fine line between being edgy and bombing, yourself.”
