Unlikely Partners: Comedy & Pain

Manchester-based, Malawi-born comedian Daliso Chaponda will be talking about the counterintuitive notion that where painful things have occurred or are occurring you often find that comedy is not far behind. As an example, during his star turn on Britain’s Got Talent, Daliso made light of his home country’s poverty when he informed the audience he was from Malawi and said, “If any of you don’t know where that is, it’s where Madonna adopted all the babies from… I do miss my little brother.” So what’s going here.
