On Humour


Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Dr Julian Baggini, Hardeep Singh Kohli
Chair: Simon Glendinning

Recorded on 18 February 2013 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

Humour is not to be confused with comedy and jokes. Humour concerns something that belongs to and can more or less pervade everyday life and conversation, not something restricted to comedy sketches or stand-up routines. In this dialogue we will explore everyday humour, and its distinctive regional and cultural variations. Are there principles of British humour that transcend class, profession, religion and region? Are there ‘cultures of humour’ across the world?

Julian Baggini is a philosopher, writer and broadcaster.

Hardeep Singh Kohli is a raconteur, a cook, a writer and a broadcaster.
