To give you a taste: apart from British literature, such as Alan Bennet’s The Uncommon Reader, and British comedy (such as the hilarious Miranda), I will also discuss texts, comedy programmes, podcasts and series, including those with or by artists of a black or Asian British background (Jackie Kay, Patience Agbabi, Goodess Gracious Me, The Mash Report, BBC Summer Comedy Festival...).
