Now robots are going after the comedians … their jobs that is.

Now robots are going after the comedians … their jobs that is. 

If you’re a robot, here’s how to be funny:

1) Funny behavior

* Overblown: Exaggerate too much

* Equivoque: Homonym or parody

* Blue jokes: Make a dirty joke

* Sympathetic story: Saying the empathic small things that almost everyone has experienced once

* Induced laugh: Comedian laughs aimed to the audiences’ infectious laugh

2) Funny context

* Running gag: Use the same story again and again

* Unexpected: Do completely unexpected behavior

3) Funny character

* Self-flattery, Self-deprecating humor

* Imitation

(speaking of which, watch “surprised Masau” in the video)
