Ali G

The comedy of Sacha Baron Cohen’s “Ali G” formed the centerpiece of Dr Richard Howells’ guest seminar “Race, Identity and the Tricky Business of Being Funny About Either”, given to the Centre for Media Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. Dr Howells, our Reader in Culture, Media and Creative Industries, used the controversial character of Ali G to explore the acceptable limits of comedy involving matters of race. A spirited discussion followed, especially in light of the recent Charlie Hebdo killings in Paris. Dr Howells is our Reader in Culture, Media and Creative Industries.
