I recall we were discussing the role of comedy in social and political critique (we were, I promise...). A couple of evenings ago I managed to catch up via iPlayer on 'Kim Jong Ils Comedy Club'. This is a pseudo documentary about a Danish Journalist and two Korean born Danish comedians on a trip, ostensibly, to put on their classic Danish farce in North Koreas National Theatre. This is not by any means a vehicle to go and laugh at the silly North Koreans.
The comedy show vehicle and the necessity to film their diary (notably in Danish, which the Korean authorities declined to bother to learn in order to vet the tapes) gives fantastic access to the North Korean process in a way I've never seen before. Veering from the hilarious to the tragic, this is a must watch in my book.
