A new type of activism is emerging that uses an unusual weapon to condemn injustice; laughter. We follow some of this new generation of activists to see what they do and if it works.
In Europe the ironically named ‘Save the Rich' and the ‘Yes Men' are trying to raise awareness of social issues through humour. But mocking the system can be a dangerous activity in some parts of the world. We also meet Syrians making sketches as the bombs fall around them; their comedy is a a form of resistance but and also an appeal to the international community to intervene.
