Legendary comedy writer and director Larry Charles travels the world in search of humor in the most unusual, unexpected and dangerous places.
Larry visits war victims in Iraq, where topical satire thrives but stand-up struggles, and Liberia, where comedy was revived by the Ebola crisis.
Larry interviews soldiers who have turned their painful combat experiences into comedy, including a veteran whose injuries fuel his stand-up routine.
Larry examines the way comedians in Saudi Arabia and media stars in Nigeria struggle against or reinforce misogynistic and homophobic attitudes.
In the U.S., Larry explores how racial division becomes comic fodder for minorities and immigrants -- as well as underground alt-right humorists.
