This week an extended interview with local funny man Hamoon Efdis.

We talk about the health effects of laughter, the origins of humour, the first recorded jokes and how Jokes have evolved over time. Are there words that should never be used, even in a joke? Are there topics that are out of bounds for comics? What is offensive? What is obscene? How are these the same/different and what role does it play in comedy?

Hamoon even takes a shot at what he would do if he were Barak Obama.


Radio Free Thinker is experimenting with a new format, next week we plan to have Randolf Richardson from the Atheist Frontier.   Find out more:
