Today, JoyFM’s Showbiz A-Z takes a look at the treatment of comedians worldwide.

What has necessitated this discussion is the treatment meted to American stand-up comedian, Chris Rock, at this year’s Oscars by actor, Will Smith.

Will Smith smacked Chris Rock in the face after he made a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Rock had touched on Pinkett Smith’s shaved head; a result of the hair-loss condition, alopecia.

Will has apologized to Chris for his action and has also resigned from the Oscars Academy.

The panellists contributing to today’s segment are Veteran Comedian and Broadcaster, Tommy Annan Forson, Actor Chris Attoh, Co-Executive Producer of 3music Women’s Brunch, Whitney Boakye-Mensah, and Clinical Psychologist, Adolf Awuku Bekoe.
