Is Comedy a Science?

Sometimes we watch a film, a TV show or an animation that makes us laugh so hard that we can’t help but fall in love with it. For decades sitcoms have been at the heart of comedy and it’s for good reason. When we’re talking about the science of comedy, it’s easy to notice it more in the world of the sitcom. Think of Friends, Seinfeld, The Simpsons, Futurama or any of your favorite sitcoms that make you laugh week in, week out. They all have a theme, they have their characters and they have their formulas.

This video is a look at how Futurama brought humor and emotion into the sterile world of science and arithmetic.
