The Ambiguous Disparity Between Comedians and Audiences

Why Comedians
Don’t Laugh in Open Mics


Comedians don’t laugh at open mics because you’re not defying their predictability; laughter is an emotional attribute, a physiological response inducing multiple muscle contract, it’s an inadvertent stimulation and not a controlled or directed behavioral phenomenon. Laughter is a primal behavior deriving from our evolutional development triggered by our brain, it’s not a restrictive or regulative activity, it has hormonal properties that’s contingent on an experience.

The stock-market volatility is unpredictable, and a stock value is essentially governed by mass psychology and sociology; people’s underlying expectations and interpretation of a company is in a constant state of fluctuation based on media information; such as, press release on acquisition, quarterly reports etc—-information that improves or desponds an investors outlook. A high level of fluctuation, volatility and unpredictability occur in the equity market, yet canny investors capitalize on the market’s lucrative potentials by studying annual reports, financial statements, proxy statements and technical analysis.

Comedians in open mics are partitioned into two state; sociological contagiousness and physiological indifference; the former is a conscious inhibition that occurs unconsciously, and the latter is a void of sympathy. Meaning, if you’re incapable of evoking laughter, it’s because you’re not tapping into the inaccessible part of their mind that affects behavior and emotion. Although the neuroscientist approach explores the nervous system and cognitive functions, we’re going to factor-in psychology and sociology as the fundamental disparity between comedians and audiences.

Comedians are audiences, but audiences are not comedians; the former is true in the objective sense and the latter is true in the subjective sense. Meaning, an assembled group of comedic spectators engaging in a participatory movement is inarguably an audience; however, delve through an audience and you’ll find comedians dispersed in subtlety!

A comedian is accustomed and acclimatized to puns, double entendre, non sequitur, onomatopoeia, lexical/syntactic/structural ambiguity, and other sorts of figurative and rhetorical devices such as; irony, sarcasm, metonymy, satire, cynicism, surrealism, absurdity, observational, and the juxtaposition of incongruity, etc…And these are just some of the intrinsic building blocks underlying humor construction. Invariably, a comedian is attuned and receptive to this structural linearity, making him immune and jaded to the unexpected potency!

Audiences are not pruned to decipher the arranged predictability in humor, they’re oblivious to such a notion, hence the unexpected potency is socially climaxing, because audiences are not there to culminate, plagiarize or analyze a comedians material, physical orchestration, ingenuity or authenticity, their keen expectancy is to have their emotions appealed to and pacified, and the enigma behind the structure is completely irrelevant to the audience.

Ambiguous humor are predictable to comedians, while it’s a conundrum to audiences; this is the inherent dichotomy between both groups. And that’s a beautiful thing, because with comedians you have to defy expectations, and transcend beyond their abstract field of perception to truly engage their mind as a whole.

This is not conducive to writing an academic joke on the electromagnetic spectrum in light or quantum electrodynamics, it might just be an inappropriate cough, awkward stumble, unreasonable pause or uncooperative moment of silence during a performance that’ll induce the heart of a comedian.

Another pervasive slogan that permeates the airwave is, “it doesn’t matter if comedians laugh, just focus on making the audience laugh, because that’s all that matters;” such a faulty logic, because comedians crave the instinctive expression of laughter also. Why disparage comedians as a collective group because you’re incapable or lack the conviction to induce persuasion. Its a rampant fallacy in the comedic community that’s irresponsible and far from astute—to say the least.

The comedic mind is intriguing, because it’s altered and modified to decipher predictability, and sparking chuckles from a peer comedian is a joy that defies description. Generating laughter quietly or inwardly from comedic peers who have a comprehensive or authorative knowledge in the field, stands on high merits of credulity, a challenge comedians must embrace—not just wholeheartedly but obligatory.

In the early 2000’s during the dot com bubble I was a devout computer programmer, specialized in HTML, Visual Basics, Css and Java. I remember reading a book called “The Art of Deception,” written by America’s most notorious computer hacker, “Kevin Mitnick.” Mitnick was an unorthodox hacker, he used social engineering as his primary rhetoric to infiltrate government databases, access bank information and steal passwords from major corporations.

To a technical hacker Mitnick’s methodology was considered fraudulent; ironically, while technical hackers were implementing logic and innovation in computer codes to compromise machines, Mitnick used his canny art of deception to acquire the same information. Both parties pursuing identical goals but achieving them from completely different perspective. With comedians you cannot pander to their predictable instinct, because they’re innately expecting uniformity and fixed patterns.

Eliciting laughter from a comedian requires being erratic and intermittent, they grapple with this sort of uncertainty, and it propels them to laugh, or puzzles them into a deeper state of quandary. Regardless, it’ll incite their interest because it’s a structural deviation. Predictability is a sort of vague term I’d like to explore in depth, because comedians don’t decipher jokes in the strictest sense, they dismantle material for the sole purpose of extracting concepts.

1: My shoes is an atheist, it has no soul..
2: Water has no calories, because it’s always running.
3: I always look left when i feel right..
4: I was taking picture of cheese, but didn’t know what to say it it..
5: When I dive into the ocean I can see my vessels.

Each joke is mutually exclusive in their sentence and idea arrangement; however, they’re conceptually identical; it exploits the idiosyncrasies in language, by highlighting the lexical ambiguity in semantics; whether the double meaning of a word derives from the noun, verb, adjective or metaphor. This conceptual template becomes invariably predictable to a comedian, hence the enthusiasm is gone—regardless if the joke itself is unpredictable—the underlying abstract structuralism is registered in their comedic inventory, so no amount of innovation using this concept can violate their modified perception.
