The Funny Thing About Muslims

Sarfraz Manzoor explores where and when Muslims can laugh at themselves and their faith. From 2008.

Sarfraz Manzoor explores the view that Muslims lack a sense of humour.

Writer and broadcaster Sarfraz Manzoor, himself a practising Muslim, talks to Muslim comics, comedy writers and scholars about what makes their fellow believers laugh.

How far can Muslim humour go about their faith? How does it compare to the way other religions and cultures laugh at themselves? And what subjects - if any - are off-limits?

Producer: Mohini Patel.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in January 2008.
