In case you somehow missed the Tweets and Facebook posts, I recently attended the Bridgetown Comedy Festival (which has been described as summer camp for comedians). As part of my Humor Code project, I was invited to participate in a panel with Pete Holmes, Mary Mack, Myq Kaplan, Jordan Morris, and my Humor Code collaborator, Joel Warner.
From the beginning the notion that science can explain comedy was under attack. Pete Holmes quipped, “You’re letting light into a room that I like very dark.” Nonetheless, we had lots of laughs and an enjoyable discussion of the the Mad Men experiment and my glimpse into the New Yorker Cartoon Contest.
