The Science of Ha!

    • David Misch (“Mork and Mindy”, “The Muppets Take Manhattan”, “Saturday Night Live”, “Funny: The Book”, his own comedy courses at UCLA and USC) explores the unexpected congruities between science and comedy. While one shoots for Nobel Prizes and the other for fat guys falling over, the funnier one uses scientific spheres like anthropology, neurology and psychology for its effects. With the aid of copious comedy clips, David shows how deception, ambiguity, pattern recognition, evolution and error-related negativity make you spit up your milk.
