What's the talk about?

Why do we laugh? What makes something funny? Does the morality of a joke affect how good a joke is? Why is breaking the rule of three important?

A broad overview at some of the contemporary academic questions about humour, laughter and jokes.

Alex is a stand-up and former school teacher. He has a deep interest in jokes and the broader questions behind humour and stand-up. 

As a stand-up Alex has been invited to perform everywhere from Mervyn Stutter’s pick of the Edinburgh Fringe, the National Museum of Scotland, the Oxford University Teaching Awards, and comedy clubs throughout the UK.

He also run comedy clubs. For more info about that visit Jericho Comedy were recommended in the Sunday Times recently and voted one of the top 6 comedy nights in the UK in the Chortle 2019 awards. You can also hear him host at Union Jack FM’s “One Night Stand” on Thursdays.
