Title says 'world', American perspective is too dominant
While I think that the idea of investigating comedy around the world is really interesting. And not explored that much before.
The american (usa) context provided in explaining comedy culture in other countries is way to dominant and many times undermines the ability to appreciate comedy from other cultures in their own right. Everything seems to be to some extent a derivative of American comedy products.
Perhaps it is some sort of availability bias that enabled the presented logic. And the potential audience was supposed to be American. And though I do not contest the fact that contemporary western comedy culture has had international impact, the series fails to present actual new information. What is the inherent comedy culture present throughout the world.
