Their city continues to be under siege, their age group is particularly at risk and their lives are increasingly isolated. But every Monday morning, a group of older New Yorkers are finding there's plenty to laugh about in the form of online comedy classes. 

The classes started in person before the lockdown orders went into effect. They now continue online.
