Creating a line from cheek to cheek can be sometimes challenging. The art of laughter is a skill that you can learn. Teamed up with Up Journey and other comedians to shed light on crafting comedy.  It is important to keep in mind that culture comes in play with the construction of comedy – know your target audience.

Comedy comes from a place of incongruity. This implies the unconventional pairing of things, the environment, and individuals in scenarios that create laughter. Think about the last joke or last comedy you heard and watched. Test if you can identify incongruity.

An example is in the quote, “I got an A in philosophy because I proved my professor didn’t exist.” – Judy Tenmuta.

The incongruence of the statement is initially, it starts off normal, then ends with a juxtaposition. However, there is the truth that the nature of philosophy highlights the topic of existence.
