Seriously, being funny is no laughing matter. This wry and witty troupe of writers and comedians have no qualms about shooting satirical comments at serious and often dangerous subjects. From global terrorism to homegrown religious extremism and racial discrimination, is there anything too sacred for their pens? This panel is definitely not for the thin-skinned.

Serius, menjadi lucu adalah tidak tertawa. Rombongan penulis komedian dan pelawak yang ceroboh dan cerdas ini tidak memiliki keraguan untuk menembaki komentar menyindir pada subjek yang serius dan sering kali berbahaya. Dari terorisme global sampai ekstremisme dan diskriminasi rasial, adakah yang terlalu suci untuk rutinitas mereka? Panel ini pastinya bukan untuk berkulit tipis.
