I’ve partnered with University of Colorado Boulder Professor Peter McGraw on The Humor Code, a global exploration of what makes things funny. The project evolved out of stories I wrote about McGraw and his Humor Research Lab (aka HuRL) for Westword newspaper and Wired magazine.
As we traveled the world, we blogged about our adventures and experiments at Wired.com, Huffington Post and Psychology Today, as well as chronicled our travels through photos and videos posted on our Facebook page.
The end result is The Humor Code: A Global Search for What Makes Things Funny, to be published by Simon & Schuster on April 1, 2014. Pre-order your copy here.
