Humour and where is the line?

There can be a fine line between have a laugh and causing offence, it seems that these days it's very easy to cause offence, so are we in danger of becoming too serious.
We started by talking with Dr Joe Guse a former comedian in Chicago and now a psychologist in NZ with his thoughts on humour and finding the line. We also talked with the Content Director of Life FM and Rhema Luke Weston with his thoughts on navigating through political correctness and comedy...... you can imagine that managing a Christian radio station means he's having to work that out regularly, so what does he weigh up when it comes to humour in-air?
