LaughLab

LaughLab is part of the Cambridge Science Festival


Psychologist Professor Richard Wiseman travelled the world on a year-long search for the world’s funniest joke. In this entertaining but informative talk he explains how the resulting research revealed much about the science of humour, including why some jokes make men laugh and women groan, the best time of day to tell a joke, how our sense of humour changes throughout our lives and, of course…the world’s funniest joke.
