The COVID-19 pandemic has led to lots of comedy about the virus. From memes to TikTok videos we are sharing COVID-19 comedy. What are the reasons for this? What is the content of COVID-19 comedy? How does this compare to jokes told during other crises? These questions will be discussed by Sharon Lockyer (Director, Centre for Comedy Studies Research).
