It’s an ever evolving mystery on exactly how comedy works and how comedians are able to synthesize their reality into something that will make a group of strangers laugh.
Many series, documentaries, podcasts, movies, books, etc. have explored this topic and will continue to do so as comedy keeps changing.
The latest series to dissect the inner workings of comedy will be coming from Viceland and led by esteemed comedy/entertainment historian Kliph Nestoroff.
Called Funny How?, Kliph will watch comedians try working out their material and then talk shop with them about their process.
Here’s a trailer for the docu-series, which you can catch the premiere of on July 10th.
