979 - Types of Humor

March 7th, 2014

Episode 53 of 489 episodes

What could be funnier than an episode about being funny? Listen and find out. Slow dialog: 1:17 Explanations: 2:48 Fast dialog: 18:47 Kyle: Are you watching that sitcom again? It’s so stupid. There’s nothing witty or original about the humor. Paulina: I don’t need highbrow jokes. I enjoy all kinds of comedy. Kyle: You mean you like screwball and slapstick humor. Paulina: Yes, so? Kyle: So? It’s so juvenile. Paulina: I know that it’s hard for people like you who like satire to appreciate the more wacky kinds of humor, but you might try getting off your high horse once in a while. Kyle: I’m not snooty. I’m just discriminating. I like comedians with a dry sense of humor like that self-deprecating guy on that show I watch. Paulina: That show is a snoozefest. That guy bores me to death. Kyle: And this show does it for you? Paulina: You bet. Kyle: There’s no accounting for taste! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
