Summary
By looking at four East Indian women cabaret performers and comedians, the film explores who sets the agenda for comedy. The film questions whether or not humor is culturally specific and what type of humor "makes it" into television and appeals to mainstream audiences. Many jokes and the off-camera commentary center concern the East-Indian cultural experience in Great Britain
