The funny side of Saudi

Have you heard the latest Saudi joke? Perhaps unlikely. Much of the outside world tends to just hear about the doom and gloom of this oil-rich Arab country. As a result the Saudi sense of humour can get overlooked.

And yet YouTube comedy is one of the most popular type of content Saudis watch online. As a part of the BBC's special series "Saudis on Social" we asked three of the most popular Saudi YouTube comedians about what makes Saudis laugh (and what doesn't) and the limits of what they can joke about.
