Do you find yourself feeling lost when people around you are laughing and you seem to have missed the joke? Humor is an important part of interacting but can be a challenge to understand. Ideas about what is funny can vary greatly from culture to culture. Jokes can include tricky wordplay and idiomatic expressions. Yet ‘getting’ humor can support success in academic, social and professional life. This small interactive workshop includes a presentation of several common types of humor and current examples of popular U.S. humor, followed by analysis and discussion of what makes the content funny. Please come prepared to participate actively in small group discussions.
