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.
