Making Europe laugh at itself: Bilingual comic Paul Taylor
Issued on: Modified:
Do Germans really follow all the rules? Why are French people always kissing each other? And why, after so many years of ever-closer union, do Europeans still misunderstand each other? Bilingual comic Paul Taylor joins us for a special year-end edition of Talking Europe, telling us how a half-Irish Brit has managed to become one of France's best-known comedians, and why he travelled all around Europe exploring national stereotypes.
We discuss whether Brexit is a rich seam of comedy material or a no-go-zone; and how laughing at ourselves can help everyone find common ground.
Produced by Isabelle Romero, Mathilde Bénézet and Perrine Desplats
