New Wave Theatre presents
Written by Dave Florez
Friday night, on your screens, in your homes, who gets to decide what is funny?
British comedian Asif Ahmed is at the top of his game, filling arenas, watched by millions. With a successful first season of his sketch tv show under his belt, Asif is ready to break his comedy act wide open, killing stereotypes and challenging the nation's comedic taste…but Kate the broadcasting company’s chief exec wants to keep a tight rein on the second season. Why let an artist make the decisions when her organisation has controlled content for years? Solly, Asif's aging agent, just wants the contract signed and to keep his most successful client relationship alive.
In this real-time three-handed power struggle, who gets to decide what’s funny in Multi-Cultural Britain: The talent or the establishment?
Age suitability: 16+
