Why Computers Can’t Make It as Stand-Up Comics

Check out this article from Live Science that was forwarded to me from my friend Laura.  Turns out our messy and inconsistent minds make us better comedians.  I’m glad my broken brain does something right!

Laura and I both worked in radio together and I’m sure at one point we both thought computers couldn’t take our DJing jobs.  We were wrong!

This probably goes back to my snobby article, but I suppose a computer could analyze the biorhythms of an audience and regurgitate a “best of” act of other comedians’ acts.  Maybe they could call it the MenC.A. 2000.
