Looking For Reasons To Laugh

quote [ Why “canned laughter,” a controversial element of most television comedy, feels so unnerving in its absence—and why it’s so fascinating in the first place. ]

It was jarring at first with Last Week Tonight's episode. Colbert's bathtub episode was also jarring at first. But the difference is that I still laughed at their jokes, whereas when you cut out the laugh track from Big Bang Theory or Friends, it becomes painful obvious that the "jokes" are really just observational comedy.
