Is comedy funny anymore? This might seem like a silly question. But, at the moment, everything seems political. And as politics has seeped into every part of culture, so has political correctness. So, Samantha Goldwater-Adler and Daniel Goldwater wonder, can comedy still be funny in today’s climate?

To help them figure that out, Daniel and Samantha are joined by their longtime friend, stand-up comic David Heti. Not just a comic, Heti is a law school graduate and former lawyer with the Department of Justice (he describes his former employer’s concerns about his edgy comedy on the episode).

He also teaches a course on comedy writing at McGill University. In this episode, The Goldwaters dive into today’s comedy, Heti’s comedic philosophy, and some of the issues around sexual harassment in the industry.
