We are pleased to announce that this issue of Comedy Studies contains the most extensive and wide-ranging set of perspectives on comedy that we have featured to date. The practitioners under discussion range from twentieth century American Vaudeville roots, as in the case of Don Rickles and Phyllis Diller; to the Algerian clown character tradition of Hdidouane; to the contemporary comic expressions of Bo Burnham and Lily Singh. International comic themes include Spanish sex comedies of the 1970s: influential Iranian TV comedy from the period 2005–2010; and current manifestations of online humour in Hong Kong. Unifying discourses, whatever the platform used by the exponents of comedy under discussion, echo those of our featured article on Indian Stand-up comedy, in its consideration of how ideology, identity and gender are treated in both content and form. This rich edition also features an interview with UK comedian, Phil Wang. We hope you enjoy this truly diverse collection of comic delights!
