Abstract

In Comic Performance in Pakistan: The Bhānd, Claire Pamment explores the centuries-old tradition of Pakistani bhānd performances which have used comedy to tread a line between flattery and challenging patrons’ authority. Asad Abbasi, however, argues that Pamment’s work is anything but comedy, and reveals the discriminations faced by this subaltern population.
