Can a comedian be universally funny? Netflix's Comedians of the World puts it to the test
Laughter is a universal language, but a joke that's funny in one culture may not have the same punch elsewhere. That's why the new Netflix series Comedians of the World is an intriguing experiment. It features nearly 50 comedians from around the world, all from different comedy background and cultures, and has them perform (in eight different languages) in the same lineup. Canadian comedy ambassadors Deanne Smith and K. Trevor Wilson join guest host Ali Hassan to talk about their role in the show and whether there's such thing as a national sense of humour.
