In comedy, there are certain unspoken rules. There are topics that all but the most extreme would find taboo. Throughout history, there are hundreds of examples of when taboo jokes have worked, and when they have not. Dancing the line between comedy and disaster is walking on a tightrope above shark infested waters. The impact, for many is so personal and so emotionally charged. Itâ€™s hard enough trying to make entertainment out of someone elseâ€™s tragedy – but why would anyone make entertainment out of their own?
Meet Jamie Campbell, a stand-up comedian with an impressive national resume. Jamie was kidnapped when he was 11, and has somehow managed to turn that into a one hour, one-man show premiering at this weekend’s Fringe Festival.
In this audio article, we talk with Jamie about what that was like and get a preview of the show.
