Howard Jacobson on humour

“I feel very committed to bringing comedy; if you really believe in comedy, that comedy is an indispensable activity with intelligence, then you can’t drop it. It can’t just not be there when people start dying: if it’s going to be any use at all it’s got to be there when there is the greater sadness.”

Speaking to Mariella Frostrup on Open Book, Radio 4, Sunday 25th July 2010
