Where does comedy stand in an increasingly polarized world?

Comedy is a big deal these days: It is front and center in our pop culture and is helping to steer the direction of our social conversation. Think of the far reach of the “Late Night Show,” “Saturday Night Live” and others. Comedy, certainly, is enjoying a Golden Age.

Yet, comedy today finds itself locked in a fight for its life, battling to protect its integrity against outside forces as well as a few in-house demons. From the aggressiveness of political correctness and the injuries of joke-stealing among comics themselves to the shrewd and unfunny manipulations by corporate America, comedy appears to be at war on several fronts.

“Comedy Under Attack: The Golden Age and the Headwinds” has the lowdown on what’s going on in Comedyland and how comedy can beat the obstacles in its path as it struggles to get on with the great business of laughter. The show must go on.
