For the Sake of Sanity
Doing Things With Humour in Irish PerformanceeBook - 2014

There as many insights to be gained from the deployment of humour in performance as people to think about it - so herein lie a healthy handful of responses from a variety of perspectives. With a general emphasis on theatre, the collection also includes essays on film, television and stand-up comedy for those insights into practice, society and culture revealed uniquely through instances of humour in performance.
