What can humour tell us about being human?

To what extent is humour a feature of being human? Do we learn to be humorous or is it something we are born with? Can computers create humour? Do animals have a sense of humour? Do animals find other animals humorous?

This event will explore these questions from a number of different engaging perspectives. During this interactive event there will be will be opportunity to use The Joking Computer, software that can build millions of jokes, there will be a comedy improvisation performance by the Funny Women Players based on suggestions from the audience on the topic of humour and ‘being human’ and lively panel discussions.

Speakers include: Dr Merideth Gattis (School of Psychology, Cardiff University); Max Kinnings (Head of Creative Writing, Brunel University, novelist and screenwriter); Lynne Parker (founder & chief executive, Funny Women); Dr Brett Mills (Film and Television Studies, University of East Anglia); and Dr Graeme Ritchie (Department of Computing Science, University of Aberdeen).
