English comedian, actor and satirist, Marcus Brigstocke, joined a group of fellow comedians for a comedy night on the topic of "climate change". In a side-splitting delivery, he highlights the somewhat awkward relationship between democracy and climate change.
Given the general inertia on the crisis of climate change, organisers of the event, The Royal Society of the Arts (RSA) in the UK, got creative and hosted the comedy night to “inject fresh life and verve into what is often a technocratic debate”. “Humour has long been a powerful tool in the social-change arsenal, but is it powerful enough to help us break through the static on this colossal issue?” ponders the RSA.
