Why are Japanese game shows so funny to the Japanese but don’t seem so funny to Americans? What makes a New Yorker cartoon hilarious? What kind of humor is found in Palestine? Tonight on Inquiry we talk with journalist and writer JOEL WARNER. Together with Peter McGraw, Ph.D, a professor at the University of Colorado in Boulder, they decided to explore what is funny around the world and discover if humor translates from one culture to the next. His stories from the field are collected in THE HUMOR CODE: A GLOBAL SEARCH FOR WHAT MAKES THINGS FUNNY. It was one wild and crazy trip. Tune in and find out why.
