Only joking : what's so funny about making people laugh? by Jimmy Carr( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A seriously funny, up-close look at joking matters--from the social origins of laughter, to the art and craft of humor, to why we can never remember the punch line--featuring over 300 jokes. Comedian Jimmy Carr and comedy writer Greeves take an in-depth look at where humor comes from and how it works, through exploring its purest form: the joke. Surveying across national, ethnic, and gender divides, they begin with the mechanism of laughter--how it happens and why even infants do it--then delve into the power of the punch line, exploring the basics of all jokes, from the use of shock and surprise to advanced stand-up techniques such as the "pull-back/reveal." Carr and Greeves go on to explore taboo humor, jokes that bomb, and the psychology of finding something funny.--From publisher description

Horizon( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this film, Jimmy Carr reveals the fascinating science of laughter and comedy. What is laughter, why do we enjoy it so much and what has it got to do with comedy? With the help of leading scientists along with Jimmy's own theories and ideas, together they try to find answers to what laughter actually is, why we love doing it so much and why we associate laughter with being amused. Science contributors in the studio include Professor Sophie Scott from University College London, who is breaking new ground in how the brain processes natural and social laughter; Professor Pete McGraw from University of Colorado, a psychologist who claims his controversial theory explains all comedy; and Professor Robin Dunbar from Oxford University, an evolutionary biologist and experimental psychologist who has a theory on why laughter was pivotal in our species development.--
