Comedy is often used to critique the status quo, disrupt harmful dominant narratives, and invite needed hope and optimism into challenging issues. Using comedy in activism can help people digest the serious and often overwhelming topic of the climate crisis. Caty Borum Chattoo is the executive director of the Center for Media & Social Impact. We caught up with her to discuss comedy as a shared cultural language, her new book and the report she wrote on the impact of Think 100% and our Co-created climate comedy project,Ain’t Your Mama’s Heat Wave.
