Stand-up Comedy

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

Question: Is stand-up comedy permissible in the Shariah?

Answer: In the name of Allah, Most Merciful.

It is in itself permitted to make people laugh.

It is blameworthy if done in blameworthy ways.

If done in wholesome ways, within the limits of permissible speech and with good intentions, it can be praiseworthy.

Wassalam,
Faraz Rabbani
