From gentle mockery to caustic sarcasm, there’s a victim at the butt of most good laughs. Must comedy be cruel to work, and does that mean comedians have a free pass when it comes to how they treat others? We’ve convened a round table of comedic writers and performers to dissect whether good comedy and good karma are mutually exclusive.

Dari olokan halus hingga sarkasme tajam, ada seorang korban di balik tawa yang terbahak-bahak. Haruskah komedi terdengar sangat jahat agar dapat tersampaikan, dan apakah itu berarti pelawak memiliki kebebasan penuh dalam memperlakukan orang lain? Kami telah membuka diskusi meja bundar para penulis dan pemain komedi untuk membedah apakah komedi dan karma baik saling meniadakan.
