In this history of humor, New York Times bestselling author Ken Jennings explores how it is that being funny became a crucial advantage in the evolutionary calculus. Looking back at the history of comedy, Jennings maps how it came to be so ubiquitous in today's world, from advertisements, to airplane safety videos, to Twitter trolls and politicians. The implications for this transformation in comedy are wide-reaching and shape how we encounter and interact with the world today. By dissecting the modern sense of humor, we can understand how it came into existence and where it may be heading next, and what that tells us about human civilization. A witty and intriguing read.(This book may contain a sharpie mark on the top or bottom edge and may show mild signs of shelfwear.)
