This book discusses boundaries for organizational humour as well as the jokers and jesters that enliven modern workplaces. It has long been accepted that humour and tragedy can occupy the same space and that is eloquently demonstrated in this book. Using ethnographic research techniques, a selection of stories, ruminations, cartoons, and narratives of events is combined with theoretical conceptions of humour and fun to create a comprehensive analysis of the good, the bad, and the downright ugly in organizational humour.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The Complexity of Workplace Humour: Laughter, Jokers and the Dark Side of Humour represents a culmination of 12 years of ethnographic research on humor in the workplace. ... This book will likely interest scholars involved in researching the development, policing, and promotion of humor in organized environments ... . In sum, Plester's work provides thoughtful reflection on humor in organizations." (Richard D. Harvey and Heather Walker, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 61 (20), May, 2016)
