A bad dictator has decreed that laughter is illegal and punishable by death.

Evil comedians go around trying to make people laugh in order to expose them as humour lovers.

An underground renegade comedy lover has to find a way to make things funny without making people laugh.

Eventually this new anti-comedy style becomes a huge craze and the dictator becomes so paranoid he cannot tell when people are laughing or not and tries to purge everybody which leads to his downfall.

Comedy is once again allowed but people realise they don’t need to laugh as the laughter is already inside of them.

alritgt, Charlie Brookers! !hahahahah

Did he already do that?

good idea this mate, i’d watch it


Maybe the dictator can be an ex comedian who nobody found funny anymore and went off the deep end

I don’t think Michael McIntyre is up to much at the moment

This is quite similar to an outline for a movie I wrote a while ago. Instead of laughter being illegal people would die if they laughed (because of some kind of virus). By the end of the movie the virus gets stronger and kills people even if they think of laughing or feel slightly happy.
